Abstract: This is the year-two completion of a project initiated in FY 02. The main objective is an evaluation of airborne remote sensing tools for GEM ecological interpretation of the data collected. The instrument package consists of (a) a pulsed lidar to map subsurface features to a maximum of 50 m, (b) an infrared radiometer to map Sea Surface Temperature (SST) day, (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. Shipboard and buoy data will be used for validation and interpretation of remotely sensed data.
