TechWorks Marine introductory online workshop on CoastEO

The Irish company TechWorks Marine signed a contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) Investing in Industrial Innovation (InCubed) programme to develop an innovative coastal monitoring solution using Earth Observation (EO).

The activity, called CoastEO or Coastal Ocean Assessment, was kicked off in January 2020 with a duration of eighteen months.

On Wednesday 9 September 2020, TechWorks Marine is holding an online introductory workshop, 10:00-11:00 (CEST). The workshop is of interest to anyone who uses water quality information in their work or research. It will consist of a short 25 minute presentation followed by an open Q&A session.

The aim of CoastEO is to provide a complete coastal monitoring service by incorporating reliable in‑situ measurements and validated satellite EO data. This flexible service can be adapted to measured parameters, deployment methods and geographic coverage.

CoastEO’s purpose is to mitigate the common cost and coverage issues surrounding coastal and marine monitoring and provide robust data. CoastEO Mini-Buoy (1.23 m in height) can be easily deployed in coastal and freshwater environments and immediately start transmitting real-time data.
