Webinar: Expanding Watershed Management and Restorations with Coastal and Marine Scientific Research
Tuesday, 02 April 2019, 10:00
Tuesday, April 2, 2019. 10:00AM. Webinar: Expanding Watershed Management and Restorations with Coastal and Marine Scientific Research. William Hernández, NOAA Center for Earth System Science. Sponsored by NOAA. More information here.
In this presentation, Hernandez will highlight some examples of the integration of scientific research by NOAA, Academia, and local Non-Profit Organizations (NGO) to support current watershed management activities. This scientific research is mainly focused on the use of remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) and making the data accessible to the managers. We also present the use of ocean color data and the development of data portals to provide easier access to managers to this information, and the use of drones for aquatic research. Additional collaborations include participation in proposals to address new threats, like Sargassum accumulations and sea level rise. Examples and results from this work will be presented.
