Action line R&D Studies for Advanced Methods
Missions Sentinel 2
Project Description
Objectives This project aims to prepare the exploitation of the Sentinel-2 mission for coral reefs by developing and validating appropriate, open source algorithm available for the community. The project objectives are the scientific exploitation and validation of the Sentinel-2 Multispectral Instrument (MSI) for mapping (habitat, bathymetry, and water quality) and detection change for coral reef health assessment and monitoring, and algorithm development dedicated to Sentinel-2 capabilities to satisfying these objectives.
Abstract

The project activities builds on the work presented in the paper authored by John Hedley, Chris Roelfsema, Benjamin Koetz and Stuart Phinn (2012), “Capability of the Sentinel 2 mission for tropical coral reef mapping and coral bleaching detection”, Remote Sensing of the Environment, 120, 145-155.

  • Critical analysis of feedback from scientists and institutions collected through consultations in ESA and Third Party workshops, symposia and conferences
  • Proposal of potential observation scenarii for Sentinel-2 in terms of required spatial coverage and repeat cycle considering user requirements, existing observation initiatives and synergy with other sensors (Landsat, SPOT sensor families)
  • Identifying scientific priority areas and providing guidance for future scientific data exploitation projects
