EUropean spatial data for COastal and MArine REmote sensing 2021

Within the framework of the European Copernicus program, satellite data are effortlessly accessible to the scientific community, companies and public. At the same time, the massive opening of digital data in various forms (spatialized or not) and across different fields, opens new avenues of research and applications. Recent advances in terms of sensor’s radiometric, spatial, temporal and spectral resolution, as well as new data processing approaches in remote sensing provides the most valuable set of tools for monitoring and mapping the various characteristics of marine, coastal and aquatic systems (Macroalgae, Seagrasses, Temperate Reefs, Coral Reefs, Salt Marshes, Mangroves, Peatlands, Aquatic Vegetation, River Systems, Estuaries, Deltas, etc.).

Indeed, this conference will highlight the contributions of remote sensing and its application for marine, coastal and aquatic zones monitoring. It aims to create an opportunity to disseminate knowledge of the issues related to the use of satellite products, new data processing methods and technologies, for marine, coastal and aquatic sciences.

After evaluation by the scientific committee, accepted papers submitted for session 1 will be published in a special issue of Remote Sensing Journal (https://www.mdpi.com). All articles selected by the scientific committee for this issue Remote Sensing will receive a discount of 30% of the publication fee.

Moreover, accepted papers submitted in sessions 2-7 will be published in a special volume of Springer Nature Edition. No publication fee for this issue.
