OVERVIEW

Training

Integrate training into the project life cycle mission phases to enhance the learning impact of every team memberís hands-on project experience to fly a science mission

Science

Remote Sensing in the Optically Complex Coastal Zone

- Airborne remote sensing is used to infer properties of the coastal zone

- High spatial resolution is needed to capture high spatial heterogeneity

Airborne reflectance spectra are composites of reflectance from:

1) the atmosphere (particles, gases);

2) the sea surface;

3) the water column (water molecules, phytoplankton, colored dissolved organic matter); and

4) the bottom (sediments, seagrass, corals).
