Aquatic Earth Observation Solutions: Technology, Use Cases and Tools

Please join the South Florida COPRI Chapter in a presentation regarding the latest solutions in Aquatic Earth Observations!



Smart monitoring, planning and decision making for projects in and around the coastal, marine, and aquatic environment requires spatial and temporal understanding on the environmental parameters. Very often time and budget constraints define the amount of data which can be collected and surveyed. In recent years, significant advances in satellite sensor technology and analysis have been developed to produce relevant information and integrate them into data collection and monitoring efforts at a fraction of the costs of traditional methods.

The intention of the presentation is to provide an overview of state-of the art Aquatic Earth Observation techniques, demonstrate successful project application, and describe other tools that support engineers, planners, and scientists to better understand our unique aquatic environment.

Edward Albada, Principal at EOMAP will be leading the presentation and discussing EOMAP’s unique physics-based procedure which allows mapping of water quality parameters, shallow water bathymetry, seafloor characteristics and topography in dense spatial grids.

A coastal and oceanographic engineer by trade, Edward has amassed over 25 years of experience working on coastal and marine infrastructure developments globally, many of them applying modern remote sensing techniques such as Satellite Derived Bathymetry, Benthic Habitat Mapping and Water Quality Monitoring. Edward is driven to demonstrate EOMAP’s cost-effective technology to transform and optimize the approach to data gathering in the dredging and marine construction industry. Edward spends his free time at the beach – surfing, sailing, swimming, and enjoying coastal nature.

The event is finished.
