Australian Marine Science Conference Eventranet 2017

Concurrent Session 3: S6: Remote sensing techniques for marine sciences


Chairs: Zhi Huang and Jamie Treleaven
Marine Remote Sensing has been evolving towards a multi-platforms and multi-sensors integrated system. A range of optical, radar and acoustic sensors can be mounted on a variety of platforms such as satellites, aeroplanes, ships, and airborne/underwater AUVs to detect and monitor marine and coastal phenomena from local to global scales. Successful applications of remote sensing technology have been demonstrated in all disciplines of marine sciences including marine geology, oceanography and marine biology and ecology. As a result, the National Marine Science Plan (2015-2025) has called for the increased and improved use of remote sensing technology to help tackle the challenges currently facing Australia’s marine estate. This symposium aims to demonstrate current and future applications of remote sensing technology in marine estate. Presentations are invited from all aspects of marine remote sensing, in particular, the applications related to the theme of this conference (“Connections through shallow seas”) and the applications of emerging marine sensors such as Himawari 8 and Sentinel 3.
