From Photon to Fork: Ocean Biology from Space | In Person

Course Description:

Ocean remote sensing offers a synoptic view of ocean ecosystems and processes that is impossible with field sampling alone. Remote sensing can be used to quantify ocean biology at the first level—the primary producers. Learn how this information is used to understand the ocean carbon budget, energy transfer through ecosystems, and the identification of harmful algal blooms. Dr. Sherry Palacios discusses her work on deriving phytoplankton biodiversity from ocean remote sensing imagery.
