Cubesats Allow High Spatiotemporal Estimates of Satellite-Derived Bathymetry
23 July 2019
Cubesats allow high spatiotemporal estimates of satellite-derived bathymetry recent study by Dimitris Poursanidis, Dimos Traganos, Chrysoulakis Nektarios and Peter Reinartz on this subject shows.
High spatial and temporal resolution satellite remote sensing estimates are the silver bullet for monitoring of coastal marine areas globally. From 2000, when the first commercial satellite platforms appeared, offering high spatial resolution data, the mapping of coastal habitats and the extraction of bathymetric information have been possible at local scales.
