Ocean colour monitoring with Sentinel-3

Event Organisers: 

RUS Training 

Algal blooms are indicators of marine ecosystem health; thus, their monitoring is a key component of effective management of coastal and oceanic resources. Sentinel-3 Ocean and Land Colour Instrument (OLCI) imagery provides continuous, high frequency water quality monitoring of coastal waters.

This webinar aims to teach the basics of image processing for ocean colour monitoring. It shows how to access the RUS Service and how to download, process, analyse and visualise the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites.

The course employs the ESA SNAP Sentinel-3 Toolbox to demonstrate the methodology for the detection and mapping of phytoplankton blooms.
