Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the following session at the
Joint Assembly in Acapulco Mexico, May 22-25, 2007.  
Session OS12: Ocean Remote Sensing -
> &show=detail&sessid=223.
Abstracts are due on March 1, 2007.

Remote sensing is one of the most efficient ways to observe and monitor
the vast ocean, including the complexities of the coastal zone. Remote
sensing of different ocean variables, such as, the sea surface
temperature, height and ice, and ocean currents, fronts, winds and color
variations due to suspended sediments, organic matter and nutrients, are
vital components of oceanic research and applications related to weather
and climate, environmental monitoring, fishery, and resources
management. Papers are solicited in all aspects of global ocean remote
sensing, including coastal and polar regions, special events, and human
impacts on marine ecosystems. These include ocean measurements from
polar and geostationary platforms in the visible, infrared, and
microwave spectrum, using passive and active techniques, as well as
advances in ocean retrieval algorithms, including cloud screening and
retrievals of atmospheric parameters over oceans. The session also
welcomes presentations on radiative transfer modeling over the oceans
and its consistency with measured satellite radiances and derived
products, including ground-truth and field campaign analyses risk
reduction work in preparation for future missions (e.g. NPOESS, GOES-R).
We also invite contributions that use ocean color remote sensing
(methods and applications) to study coastal processes and human impacts
on coastal ecosystems.
We look to your participation.
Best Regards
