Remote Sensing of the Coastal Zone

About SIG

The SIG is a platform for S&T cooperation and information exchange among people interested in

  • physical dynamics of currents, tides, waves and sediment transport,
  • flux and transformation of chemical and biological seawater constituents including pollutants,
  • relevance of physical conditions for chemical and biological processes,
  • morphodynamical processes and their relevance for coastal engineering,
  • importance of these factors for economy, sustainability and society,

while investigated with remote sensing, covering active and passive sensors in the ultraviolet, visible, infrared and microwave spectral ranges, algorithms for data interpretation, ground truth methods and modelling of processes using parameters for starting conditions and output validations that can be remotely sensed.

Membership in EARSeL is recommended but is not a prerequisite.

Our books

The list of books our SIG published will be updated soon

The reception of the 7th EARSeL Workshop on Remote Sensing of the Coastal Zone has been held in the Stockholm City Hall, the traditional venue of the Nobel Banquet.
