  • Friday 14.00-17.00
  • Lecture Theatre 105
  • Geography Department, St. Marys

Marine and Coastal Studies
  • Three components
  • Technology
  • Theory
  • Applications

Marine and Coastal Studies
  • Content
  • Data and Information as the basis for Knowledge
    and Understanding
  • Importance of Access to Data and Information for
    Studying the Marine and Coastal Environment
  • Geospatial Data and Information Defined
  • The Geospatial technologies of remote sensing,
    GIS, Digital Mapping (and Cartography), GPS,
    Mobile Data Collection, and the Internet theory
    and practice
  • The Data into Information Pathway
  • Data Collection
  • Data Handling and Processing
  • Data Analysis
  • Data Visualisation

Marine and Coastal Studies
  • Content (details)
  • An introduction to the fundamentals of airborne
    and satellite borne remote sensing in coastal and
    marine environments including an introduction to
    the sensors and platforms used
  • An introduction to the fundamentals of digital
    image processing (DIP)
  • Example applications of remote sensing to coastal
    and marine environments e.g. monitoring of
    sediment movement, change detection, pollution,
    bathymetry, mangroves, coral reefs, algal blooms,
    sea surface temperature, oil spills and
    contingency planning, emergency response amongst
    many others
  • An introduction to desktop and online
    (Internet-based) Geographical Information Systems
    (GIS) and Decision Support Systems (DSS) theory
    and practice
  • Integrating disparate data sources for mapping,
    analysis and modelling
  • Example applications of GIS to coastal and marine
  • Mobile Field Data collection, Global Positioning
    Systems (GPS), WAP-enabled mobile phones
  • Examples of Internet-based Information and
    Decision Support Systems (DSS)
  • Data and Information sources for coastal and
    environmental monitoring, mapping and modelling
