Coastal and Marine Resources

Coastal zones and marine resources are invariably characterized rich natural resources. The interaction between land and sea, climatic changes as well as human activities affects coastal environment and marine resources. Remote Sensing provides repetitive large scale information about the state and dynamics of marine ecosystem. Important areas of application are;

  • Oceanography
  • Assess coastal and marine resources
  • Monitor coast erosion and sedimentation
  • Map coastal configuration, bathymetry, navigation channels and landforms
  • Mapping of creeks and coastal lakes
  • Aqua culture site identification and monitoring
  • Monitoring fishing sites
