Get hands-on experience with the newest
satellite imagery and bathymetric data, and become a core developer of tools
that have applications in the real world.
surveying in Greenland is challenging due to harsh conditions, hazardous rocks,
logistics, dependent on season etc. At present time, the hydrographic surveyors
(Danish Defense) are mainly using multibeam systems by ship, which are quite accurate
and reliable but limited concerning survey coverage and time. Any means of
supporting/complementing the current surveying approaches could show great
potential in Greenland. Satellite Derived Bathymetry (SDB) methods have shown potential
for hydrography in some areas of the world, and The Danish Geodata Agency is
therefore very interested in further research into these methods applied to the
master’s project consist of different stages:
of satellite imagery (atmospheric correction, deglint etc.).
(land, clouds, white caps).
of inversion code à retrieval of water depth, optical properties
and bottom type.
of the results and compare to other methods.
The student can choose to focus on parts or all of
above stages. It is expected that the student will develop tools for at least
two of the stages.
