Remote Sensing of the Coastal Zone

Theme days
Wednesday, 23 January 00:00
Radboudkwartier 23
3511 CC Utrecht, Netherlands

Date and venue: Friday 25 January 2013, Hoog Brabant (situated in Hoog Catharijne), Utrecht

Organisers: Daphne van der Wal (Royal NIOZ) and Claire van Oeveren (NCK, Deltares)


You can register for this free event by sending an email to Jolien Mans. (Note that there is a limit to the number of participants, so timely registration will prevent  disappointment...)

The Theme Day will provide an overview of the state of the art of remote sensing of the coastal zone in the Netherlands. The presentations will cover morphological, ecological and water quality aspects, using satellite, airborne and near-surface (imaging) remote sensing . The aim is to raise awareness of the value of remote sensing capabilities both for scientific research and coastal management, and to identify opportunities for observing and monitoring the (Dutch) coast using remote sensing.
