Upcoming Seminars

Dr. Blake Schaeffer

Remote Sensing for Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment
Dr. Blake Schaeffer | U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
8.17.20 @ 12pm (EDT)

Satellite technology and methods to derive water quality products have primarily focused on oceanic waters and are significantly improving in coastal, estuarine, and inland waters. My work focuses on the use of satellite observations in optically complex and shallow coastal waters, which traditionally have been challenging environments for remote sensing applications. My research niche is the development of applications using “ocean color” technologies and optical instruments to meet end-user needs for water quality monitoring and assessment. Generally, interests include the use of field-based optical instruments and satellite remote sensing data to study ecosystem exposures, dynamics and responses.
