Welcome to the…
Water is our source of life. Just like aquatic environments, the field of earth observation (EO) is very dynamic. This is why the Water Days focus on innovations and applications of aquatic EO.
The premiere of the international conference in October 2022 included the 4th SDB Day, a renowned technology and user forum on Satellite-Derived Bathymetry.
… with experts on Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB) and other fields of aquatic earth observation. This time, the well-known SDB Day has been embedded in the Water Days, and we’ll widen the scope. By this, we intend to build a bridge from coastal to inland water (quality) aspects.
… with key players. The Water Days are an excellent opportunity to meet experts on marine and inland waters who apply satellite-derived technology for various survey activities. During the conference sessions, but also informally during breaks or at social events.
… with innovations for mapping & monitoring coastal and inland waters. Meet researchers and software engineers to learn how they tackle big data. – Take your place at the forefront of coastal or water management.
