Poster Abstract
Compared to moderate resolution (>250 m) satellite sensors, high resolution satellite (<1-100 m) sensors can spatially resolve more coastal processes including sea surface effects (sun/sky glint, waves, foam) and impacts of human activities. Additionally, high resolution data can be used for characterizing validation sites for moderate resolution satellites that still have the big advantage of near-daily revisit times. The question to what extent the measurement platforms or ships themselves influence the signal measured by the satellite might be answerable with high resolution data.
