Paper Abstract

Coastal remote sensing applications are regularly confined to single image 'snapshot' approaches which do not resolve the dynamic processes in the required temporal resolution. This paper reports the results of a project in which the dynamics of tidal sedimentation were monitored by multi-temporal airborne remote sensing in 10 minute time steps. The radiance data was then converted to estimates of suspended particulate matter loading by the inversion of a hydro-optical analytical model. The results demonstrate that multi-temporal coastal remote sensing can provide information about such dynamic processes that realistically can not be obtained by field-based research methods.
