Remote sensing Marine Litter in the Mediterranean

Project Description
  • September 2018 - 12 months
  • PM: Dr Mark Hennen
    Project Manager

Our main objective is to develop and Earth Observation (EO) processor that routinely observes Marine Litter (ML) in the Mediterranean Seas. The EO processor will employ ancillary data, in an attempt to predict where ML will land.

Multiple media sources and citizen science observations will be used to identify ML events in the Mediterranean. Once identified, we will attempt to use Sentinel-2 data to retrieve images of the ML. Project under contract of the European Space Agency.
