Possibilities of remote sensing technologies in coastal studies
published at : Land, sea and human effort
This paper addresses particularly the possibilities of remote sensing techniques for the hydro- and morphodynamics of the coastal zone s.s. An integrated approach combining remote sensing data and specific hydrodynamic modelling has opened interesting new possibilities for obtaining quantitative information on determining coastal process parameters. This reflects : bottom topographical data, the wave climate, wave predictions, real time flow calculations and inventories of available sand mining prospects. Such development are in an early stage, but rapid progress is expected in the near future
