Using Earth Observation for Water Quality Monitoring (13 & 14 October 2020) – Workshop Resources 2020


Products derived from Copernicus satellite data have many applications for monitoring water quality in freshwater, estuarine and marine environments. Examples include 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.

The virtual workshop on Using Earth Observation for Water Quality Monitoring was held on 13 and 14 October 2020 and was attended by 174 delegates from 20 countries.

The video and presentation slides are available here, along with the resources provided to the participants and the workshop programme. A summary of the workshop is provided in JNCC Report No. 672.
