Using Earth Observation for Water Quality Monitoring

You are here



Organisation: JNCC

Free online Workshop and training course

Products derived from Copernicus satellite data have many applications in aquatic environments, including seabed mapping, predicting species distribution, detecting eutrophication and toxic algal blooms, tracking oil spills, quantifying plastic pollution and helping to predict responses to climate change.

This international workshop organised by JNCC (Joint Nature Conservation Committee) will showcase the use of freely available satellite data and products for monitoring water quality in marine and freshwater environments, and conclude with a discussion about research and development priorities to meet policy requirements. In conjunction with the workshop, Plymouth Marine Laboratory are delivering a practical training session on accessing and using marine Earth observation data.
