  • GEO Inland and Coastal Water Quality Working Group

    2012-15 WA-01: Water Task Work Plan C1 Integrated Water-cycle Products and ServicesC2 Information Systems for Hydro-meteorological Extremes (incl. Floods and Droughts)C3 Information Service for Cold Regions C4 Global Water Quality Products and ServicesC5 Information System Development and Capacity Building

  • The goal of this component is to develop an international operational water quality information systems based on Earth observation

    This component will integrate water quality data from multiple sources in a timely manner and through data assimilation of Earth observations with other sources of data such as water quantity, hydrodynamics, biogeochemical modelling, generate higher level information products such as trends and anomalies and additional value-added products such as fluxes and flows

    This component encompasses both the collation and development of in-situ water quality databases and remote-sensed data, particularly space-borne data.

    The component addresses both flowing and static water bodies, recognizes differing approaches to assessing their water quality and the linkages/interface between them.C4 Global Water Quality Products and ServicesLakes Mendota & Monona -University of Wisconsin SSEC image

    The ultimate goal of the Diversity II Project is to support the implementation of the new 2011-2020 biodiversity strategic plan of the Convention of Biological Diversity.

    The specific Objectives of the Diversity II Project are to provide for selected key parameters, status maps, associated change maps, status indicators and trend indicators. These key parameters for inland waters are availability of freshwater and quality of freshwater, reflected in its water constituents such as chlorophyll-a and/ or suspended matter concentration, as well as by its temperature.

    The products shall be provided on a global scale by producing results for at least 300 large perennial inland waters and covering a time range from 2002 to 2012.

  • Global Lakes Sentinel Services

    EU R&D Project, 3 years, 2013-15

    ObjectivesSetting up a system to handle the enormous amount of Sentinel 2and Sentinel 3 dataGeneration and distribution of lake water quality products (globally)

    Key challengesAlgorithms, SIOPs, AC including adjacency effects, HAB, data miningData Volumes- suitable IT InfrastructureS2 1 TB/day (L1), S3 2 TB/day (L1+L2)

  • Project Coordinator- Andrew Tyler, University of Stirling, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, University of Dundee, University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow, Plymouth Marine Lab.

    5 -year duration (2012-2017)

    ObjectivesInvestigate state of the lakesLake response to climate variablesGenerate time series of water quality and surface temperatureLink to catchment landuse and meteorological forcing data

    Work ProgramLarge In situ componentFocuses on MERIS archives and potential Sentinel 3Linkage to ecosystem modeling

  • The Global Lake Temperature Collaboration (GLTC) began in the fall of 2010 to assemble an international group of investigators with interest in and access to global lake temperature records (both in situ and satellite-based). The GLTC has over 50 investigators Held a workshop in 2012 to bring together all international project participants in a common location to:share dataexamine patterns and trends perform comparative analysis compile a global lake temperature database publish results from the GLTC project.

    Coordinator- John Lenters, University of Nebraska USA

  • What are the global and regional patterns of lake warming (or cooling) over the past several decades, and are they concordant across space and time?What climatic and geographic factors control these patterns (e.g., air temperature, solar radiation, latitude, elevation, lake area, lake depth)?How do inferences from in situ records compare with those from satellite data (e.g., mean values, trends, interannual variability)?Do trends in lake surface temperature mimic those in deeper waters, and what does this imply for vertical mixing and stratification?What are the ecological consequences of the observed changes in lake temperature?Project Questions

  • From C. Brockmann, 2012

  • Remote Sensing of Near Coastal and Inland Water WorkshopNASA ROSES 2011 E.2 Topical Workshops, Symposia, and Conferences

    Colleen Mouw (University of Wisconsin) co-chairSteven Greb (Wisconsin Dept. Natural Resources) co-chairPaul DiGiacomo (NOAA NESDIS)Simon Hook (NASA JPL)Chuanmin Hu (University of South Florida),ZhongPing Lee (University of Massachusetts-Boston)Ru Morrison (University of New Hampshire) Draft Strategy Report text

  • Integration schematic of the four fundamental elements of satellite remote sensing

  • Coincident with the technological advances

    Education programs and capacity building through new demonstration project initiatives need to be promoted.

    This important recommendation emphasizes the need for strong linkages between the entities that produce the data and the end users. This relationship will ultimately determine the success of these tools for future water resource management

  • Emphasis on GEO playing a coordination and facilitating role between projects*Point out that GEO is ultimately interested in downstream products, with special emphasis on developing countries*Provide a strategic plan for incorporation of current and future EO information into national and international near-coastal and inland water quality monitoring efforts. This plan is directed towards both space agencies and the water quality community/institutions. Promote partnerships and propose specific new linkages between providers and data end users
