Chemistry of Water Series: Satellite Remote Sensing–Ocean Color

November 12, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Chemistry of Water Series: Satellite Remote Sensing–Ocean Color

Science and art converge at Hawaii Watercolor Society’s Chemistry of Water at the Honolulu Musuem of Art School Main Gallery. Free lecture.

About this Event

Dr. Ruhul Amin, PhD, shares examples captured from multi-spectral and hyperspectral images from sun synchronous and geo-stationary satellite sensors, and the International Space Station (ISS). The color of the ocean depends on the solar irradiance, atmospheric condition, imaging geometries, and dissolved and particulate matters in the water. The term “ocean color” refers to the spectral composition of the visible light field reflected from the ocean, which can be used to extract information about the surface water column. I will give an overview of ocean color remote sensing and discuss various STEM opportunities.

This talk, a part of a Tuesday lunch series hosted by the Hawaii Watercolor Society to complement their Chemistry of Water exhibition seeks to inspire lovers of science and art.
