Final Programme Released! 2023 GEO AquaWatch Biennial Workshop

Water Quality Information for the Benefit of Society

Earth Observation of inland and coastal water quality: Toward water quality forecasting

13 November 2023, University of South Florida St. Petersburg, St. Petersburg, Florida, USA 

a meeting of GEO AquaWatch in conjunction with the IOCS Meeting 

GEO AquaWatch invites you to a one-day workshop of the inland and coastal water quality community in conjunction with the ocean color science community.  

Our workshop theme is Toward Water Quality Forecasting. 

The use of Earth Observation (EO) for water quality applications is rapidly advancing. Inland and near-shore coastal environments deliver multiple ecosystem services that benefit society and yet only a fraction of global inland water systems are routinely monitored for water quality.  Observing inland and near-coastal water bodies makes remote sensing a valuable source of data on water quality and ecosystem condition at local and global scales. 

This workshop will be an opportunity for the community to respond to outcomes of the recent United Nations Water Conference and Water Action Agenda to reach sustainable development goals (SDG 6, and related).   Other global initiatives like the UN Ocean Decade, the Convention on Wetlands, and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, all hinge on better water management coordination and decision-making to benefit society.

Water quality forecasting contributes to improved water management, climate studies, and achieving SDGs. Focusing our workshop on EO  multiscale forecasting of inland and near-shore coastal water conditions will be timely. Discussions of forecasting tools and observing opportunities provided by the upcoming PACE and GLIMR and Australian AquaWatch CSIRO missions are especially relevant in prioritising future GEO AquaWatch activities, and this will be a workshop outcome. 

GEO AquaWatch has a strong emphasis on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) policies and these principles will be encouraged in setting the programme. Meeting participants will be expected to be aware of and follow GEO AquaWatch’s new Code of Conduct during discussions.   

Meeting Logistics: When: 13 November 2023; 08:30-17:00 local time.   Fees: none  Travel Funds: none

GEO AquaWatch Releases New Communications Plan and Year 2 DEI Metric Results

Today the GEO AquaWatch Management Team and Steering Committee approved a new GEO AquaWatch Communications Plan and the Year 2 Report on our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Metrics.   The reports are available under the Resources > AquaWatch Documents Tabs. These efforts benefit the entire GEO AquaWatch Community and we are proud of the work that went into drafting them.  The Communications Plan was customized for GEO AquaWatch, but elements were developed in collaboration with the GEO BluePlanet Initiative and the GEO Health Community of Practice and we thank them for their assistance!
