Did you know that satellites are a great tool for monitoring water quality?
Regular testing of water quality is an important part of environmental monitoring and evaluation of the ecological status of an area.
Traditional monitoring based on in-situ sampling provide accurate point measurements but are time consuming and costly.
Incorporating satellite monitoring into traditional monitoring programs adds significant value as the satellite monitoring provides both the spatial overview and offers high temporal frequency.
Combining in-situ sampling with satellite data allows you to accurately map and quantify phenomena such as algae blooms, urban and industrial waste discharge as well as turbidity (natural and man-made).
Satellite-based water quality information combined with ecological modelling further allows us to forecast the situation at a chosen site, days in advance.
