Title: Satellite-Derived Bathymetry: Essential Concepts, Production and Evaluation



Coastal and littoral zones are an essential domain to the GEOINT community. Advancements in space-based earth observation sensors, and newly available technologies, enable geospatial analysts to leverage Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB) to fulfill a unique role in the hydrospatial community. This wholly-remote technology allows for depth derivation in areas typically denied to traditional methods of seafloor mapping due to geopolitical constraints, remote locales, or adverse metocean conditions. This instruction will detail how to evaluate the efficacy of SDB in an area of interest, source and evaluate multispectral imagery and in-situ data sources, produce SDB for a given area utilizing currently available software, and evaluate a produced SDB model for accuracy and quality. 

Learning Objectives

By taking this training, the learner will be able to describe the core technological concepts of Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB), assess SDB feasibility of an area of interest, evaluate the quality of a multispectral imagery for SDB production, understand how to produce satellite-derived bathymetry using an empirical method, and assess a produced SDB dataset.
