About

CoastObs is an EU H2020 funded project that aims at using satellite remote sensing to monitor coastal water environments and to develop a user-relevant platform that can offer validated products to users including monitoring of seagrass and macroalgae, phytoplankton size classes, primary production, and harmful algae as well as higher level products such as indicators and integration with predictive models.

To fulfill this mission, we are in dialogue with users from various sectors including dredging companies, aquaculture businesses, national monitoring institutes, among others, in order to create tailored products at highly reduced costs per user that stick to their requirements.

With the synergistic use of Sentinel-3 and Sentinel-2, CoastObs aims at contributing to the sustainability of the Copernicus program and assisting in implementing and further fine-tuning of European Water Quality related directive.

LONG LIVE CoastObs!
LONG LIVE CoastObs!

Last April, we had our final project meeting. In the past 4,5 years, we have been working on developing a user-relevant platform that offers validated information products based on satellite remote sensing. Does CoastObs end here?


On the contrary: CoastObs has just begun in earnest! The CoastObs consortium will continue as a commercial water monitoring products & services provider.

Interested in knowing more?

April 22nd was the day we should have gathered in person and say a more proper and warmer goodbye. However, we sadly had to do it virtually and keep the spirits up with the filters zoom meetings can offer.
