This virtual workshop delivered by JNCC aimed to raise awareness of how Copernicus satellite data can aid water quality monitoring in freshwater, estuarine and marine environments. Case studies demonstrated a range of applications, including

  • Seabed mapping
  • Quantifying plastic pollution
  • Detecting eutrophication and toxic algal blooms
  • Tracking oil spills, and
  • Helping to predict responses to climate change.

In conjunction with the workshop, Plymouth Marine Laboratory ran a short online training session on how to select, access and process marine EO data made freely available under the Copernicus programme.
