Abstract: This project will evaluate airborne remote sensing tools for GEM monitoring, including a biological/ecological interpretation of the data collected. The instrument package consists of (a) a pulsed LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) to map subsurface biological features day to a maximum of 50 m, (b) an infrared radiometer to map SST (sea surface temperature) day (similar to AVHRR, Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer), (c) two three-chip digital video systems to map ocean color (chlorophyll), birds, mammals, surface fish schools, and ocean frontal structure, and (d) an infrared digital video to map birds and mammals at night. The project will use shipboard and buoy data for validation and interpretation of remote sensed data.
