Webinar: Engaging Users In Solving Coastal Issues – CEOS COAST Product Showcase – 05 October 14-15:30h CEST

CEOS Coastal Observations, Applications, Services, and Tools (COAST) seeks to engage with coastal stakeholders to guide the next stages of its ambition.  At this community webinar you will learn more about CEOS COAST and see product demonstrations directed at solving coastal issues in pilot regions. COAST EO applications will be co-developed and co-designed with users to better inform decision-making and to improve products with local data for validation.  The initial foci include: Flooding and inundation, bathymetry/coastline mapping, coastal eutrophication, and turbidity/sedimentation.

By showcasing some of the EO products and services that are currently available, the aim is to seek feedback and to use this to refine and tailor existing products to other coastal communities around the world.  New EO product development will also be considered where issues are raised through this consultation.  CEOS COAST has been endorsed as a contribution to the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.  Presentations by ISRO, Geoscience Australia, ESA, NOAA, GEO AquaWatch, and GEO BluePlanet will be featured.

Register now for the webinar on 05 October, 14:00-15:30 hrs CEST (12-13:30 hrs UTC). The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Secretariat is pleased to co-convene this webinar with CEOS (Committee on Earth Observation Satellites) on Coastal Observations, Applications, Services, and Tools Ad Hoc Team (COAST) to illustrate the utility of Earth observations (EO) in providing evidence-based solutions to environmental challenges.
