Description

Our program conducts research in remote sensing to support coastal management. We are developing ways to use satellite data to complement lidar and traditional bathymetric surveying for charting. Our primary areas of interest in this opportunity are the development of methods for understanding the influence of turbidity on satellite-derived bathymetry and lidar mapping, and the successful quantification of satellite-bathymetry and climatological variations in water clarity in various types of coastal waters, including water with sediment and with algal blooms.
