Surveying Posidonia Oceanica with satellite data

It's known that Earth Observation data can highly contribute to the monitoring of coastal areas, thanks to the typical characteristics offered by the satellite for such applications: synoptic view of large marine areas, frequency of passage and high temporal resolution, rapid acquisition and ready availability of updated data. Until recently, however, the characteristics of the available data limited the use of satellite remote sensing for monitoring large marine areas. Today's technology can make use of new resources, such as the latest generation of multispectral sensors, extremely important from a scientific point of view as they allow to monitor specific coastal areas as well as relevant phenomena in terms of both environmental and landscape.
