Program description


Having and maintaining suitable water quality is critical to sustaining life on our planet. Inland and coastal areas are of particular concern as the majority of the world’s population lives in these riparian and coastal areas. Monitoring water quality using remote sensing, in conjunction with strategic in situ sampling and hydrodynamic modelling can play a crucial role in determining the current status of water quality conditions and mitigate future water catastrophes. The course deals with the retrieval of geophysical and biochemical properties of aquatic ecosystems from remotely sensed data in a generic manner. The course will treat water quality indicators, primary production indictors, phytoplankton species, and characteristics of substrate in shallow and clear waters (e.g. bottom type and coral reef), intertidal mudflats, aquatic vegetation and wetland. This course is targeted at water/natural resources and environmental engineers, biologists, biohydrologists, and hydraulics and coastal engineers.
