Special Interest Group
in the framework of the
29th EARSeL Symposium
More than 60% of humans live within 60 km from the coastline, and therefore coastal zones are important environmental and economic resources. As a complex interface between land and oceans, its investigation from space or using airborne sensors has always been a challenge.
The 4th workshop focuses on the impact of our climate on coastal zones and inland waters, on climate change and its expected effects on European seas, and on the role of remote sensing for its study.
and their investigation with Remote Sensing:
The working language at the Workshop is English.
