Paper Abstract

A remote sensing methodology for monitoring the coastal zone of the Black Sea is proposed. Aiming to assess different water quality parameters and to map their spatial distribution, several studies have been carried out in the Institute of Optoelectronics, Remote Sensing Department. The main steps of the synthesized methodology are presented in detail, insisting on some original algorithms. To illustrate the described methodology, Landsat MSS and TM images, together with SAR-ERS- 1 data, gathered over two different coastal areas of the Black Sea, have been used. The results are promising, in the sense that the methodology extracted was tested on several remote sensing data and the results obtained showed a good concordance with the 'in-situ' data.
