Description

In addition to its intrinsic value, the coastal zone is one of the most dynamic and ecologically significant landscapes on Earth's surface. Heightened awareness of global climate change and associated rising sea levels has placed an increased impetus on the management of coastal and aeolian systems. This session seeks presentations exploring recent advances in GIS and remote sensing technologies for coastal applications including, but not limited to: GIS, LiDAR, UAVs, and participatory mapping.
