Remote Sensing of the Coastal Zone


About us


The SIG is a platform for co-operation and information exchange among people interested in
– the physical dynamics of currents, tides, waves and sediment transport,
– the flux and transformation of chemical and biological seawater constituents including pollutants,
– the relevance of physical conditions for biological and chemical processes,
– morphodynamical processes and their relevance for coastal engineering,
– the relevance of these factors for living conditions, tourism, shipping and economy
and their investigation with Remote Sensing. This covers the microwave, visible and infrared spectral range, active and passive methods, algorithms for data interpretation, ground truth methods, and modelling of processes using parameters for starting conditions and output validation that can be remotely sensed.
Membership in our hosting organisation, the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories is recommended but is not a prerequisite.
