Several studies have shown the relevance of satellite systems in detecting, monitoring, and characterizing fire events as support to fire management activities. On the other hand, up to now, only a few satellite-based platforms provide immediately and easily usable information about events in progress, in terms of both hotspots, which identify and...

Investigating the variability of phytoplankton phenology plays a key role in regions characterized by cyclonic circulation regimes or convective events, like the north-western Mediterranean Sea (NWM). The main goal of this study is to assess the potential of the robust satellite techniques (RST) in identifying anomalous phytoplankton blooms in the...

The total suspended matter (TSM) variability plays a crucial role in a lake's ecological functioning and its biogeochemical cycle. Sentinel-2A MultiSpectral Instrument (MSI) and Landsat 8 Operational Land Instrument (OLI) data offer unique opportunities for investigating certain in-water constituents (e.g., TSM and chlorophyll-a) owing to their spa...

I'm pleased to let you know that the special issue "he Environmental Impacts of Oil and Gas Industry: Potential and Limits of Remote Sensing Methods" is online at https://www.mdpi.com/journal/sustainability/special_issues/GasIndustry
Article
Full-text available
In recent years, the risk related to oil spill accidents has significantly increased due to a global growth in offshore extraction and oil maritime transport. To ensure sea safety, the implementation of a monitoring system able to provide real-time coverage of large areas and a timely alarm in case of accidents is of major importance. Satellite rem...

Timely and continuous information about flood spatiotemporal evolution are fundamental to ensure an effective implementation of the relief and rescue operations in case of inundation events. In this framework, satellite remote sensing may provide a valuable contribution provided that robust data analysis methods are implemented and suitable data, i...

Timely and continuous information about flood dynamics are fundamental to ensure an effective implementation of the relief and rescue operations. Satellite data provided by optical sensors onboard meteorological satellites could have great potential in this framework, offering an adequate trade-off between spatial and temporal resolution. The lates...
Article

Standard chlorophyll-a (chl-a) algorithms, which rely on Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectro-radiometer (MODIS) data aboard the Aqua satellite, usually show different performances depending on the area under consideration. In this paper, we assessed their accuracy in retrieving the chl-a concentration in the Basilicata Ionian Coastal waters (Ionian...
Article
The analysis of chlorophyll-a (chl-a) variability on a long-term basis could allow detecting possible issues in the whole marine ecosystem functioning. The Gulf of Taranto (Southern Italy), in the North-western Ionian Sea (Mediterranean Sea), has been affected by several environmental threats in the last decade, thus deserving the implementation of...
Article
Full-text available
Natural crude-oil seepages, together with the oil released into seawater as a consequence of oil exploration/production/transportation activities, and operational discharges from tankers (i.e., oil dumped during cleaning actions) represent the main sources of sea oil pollution. Satellite remote sensing can be a useful tool for the management of suc...

Monitoring river plume dynamics and variations in complex coastal areas can provide useful information to prevent marine environmental damage. In this work, the Robust Satellite Techniques (RST) approach has been implemented and tested on historical series of Aqua Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data to monitor, for the first...
Article
Oceanographic cruises have been conducted on the Condor seamount (SW Faial Island, Azores archipelago, NE Atlantic) since 2009 to collect in situ data and understand potential seamount effects on local biodiversity. Satellite data have been concurrently collected to infer the space-time upper-ocean optical property variability and the associated ph...

A wave-propelled autonomous vehicle (Wave Glider) instrumented with a variety of oceanographic and meteorological sensors was launched from Gulf of Naples on the 12th of September 2012 for a two-week mission in the Southern Tyrrhenian Sea. The main objective of the mission was a preliminary evaluation of the potential of commercial autonomous platf...

Ocean Colour (OC) algorithms and products have been mostly developed for the analysis of open ocean waters (i.e. Case 1 waters). Nevertheless, most of these algorithms are global. Therefore, it is urgent to develop regional algorithms for Case 1 waters with different bio optical properties and varied ocean circulation schemes. The area investigated...

Remote Sensing for Suspended Solid Material detection and monitoring in coastal waters
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Satellite and in situ measurements for coastal water quality assessment and monitoring: a comparison between MODIS Ocean Color and SST products with Wave Glider observations in the Southern Tyrrhenian Sea (Gulf of Naples, Italy). A wave-propelled autonomous vehicle (Wave Glider, WG) carrying a variety of oceanographic and meteorological sensors was...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The variation in Suspended Solid Material (SSM) concentration influences the penetration of light in the water column and therefore water quality, especially in terms of phytoplankton and benthic algae productivity. Remote sensing data have already demonstrated their potential for monitoring SSM in coastal areas. Anyway, an integration of satellite...

Full-text available
Marine resources, representing one of the most significant of the Earth, deserve monitoring systems able to provide reliable and frequently updated information about their status and evolution. An integrated approach, based on the combination of in situ measurements, satellite observations and specific models, can represent the most adequate soluti...

Dear Colleagues, This Special Issue focuses on the role of earth observation (EO) data and remote sensing (RS) techniques for the identification and assessment of environmental impacts of both onshore and offshore oil and gas (OG) activities on air, water, soil, and ecosystems. The oil and gas industry is a significant source of threats to the environment. Despite this, the demand for these non-renewable resources remains high. The issue of environmental sustainability is a major concern for governments and players from the oil and gas industry worldwide, which are both engaged in promoting environmentally sound industrial development. To this aim, accurate knowledge of impacts, risks, and possible accidents that may arise from these activities is fundamental to reducing pollution from OG activities and their impacts on human and society. Substantial challenges remain in obtaining timely and accurate information about these phenomena. Within this context, one promising method of addressing this issue is to use EO systems, recognized as effective tools for surveying the environment. The synergistic use of EO-derived data and the integration with ground-level observations are becoming a fundamental requirement for identifying pollution sources from oil and gas platforms, tracking their emissions over time, and measuring and monitoring local to global sustainable development policies and programs. The purpose of this Special Issue is to collect research articles addressing this complex and multifaceted topic, with particular reference to: Exploring the current earth observation capabilities in providing an overview of the environmental status and of trends over time seen in relation to OG activities; Analyzing the capabilities and drawbacks of satellite data (both optical and synthetic aperture radar (SAR)) and methods for detecting, characterizing, and estimating all impacts (environmental, social, economic) of OG activities.
