The Seventh International Conference on Remote Sensing for Marine and Coastal Environments will be held 20-22 May 2002 at the Hyatt Regency Miami in Miami, Florida, USA, overlooking the Miami River and minutes from the Art Deco District of South Beach and the Atlantic Ocean.

The three-day international conference will focus on the application of remote sensing and advanced geospatial information technologies to address real-world problems and improve decision-making in marine, inland water, and coastal environments. The conference also explores technology implementation strategies, while helping to shape future research directions. Technical sessions will address such topics as Sensors, Processing, and Data Sources; Ocean Processes; Biological and Geological Resources; Aquatic and Coastal Environments; Ecosystem Monitoring; and Climate and Meteorology. This diversity of interests will provide a unique and rewarding opportunity for dialogue among ocean scientists and engineers; marine, freshwater, and coastal planners; natural resource managers; industry leaders; remote sensing specialists; local, state, and federal agencies; non-governmental organizations; educators and students.

The technical program of plenary sessions and interactive poster presentations is designed to benefit all users of remote sensing with an interest in our aquatic and coastal resources. The applications-oriented program addresses all aspects of remote sensing, from fundamental processes and techniques to advanced data processing and information fusion, exploitation, and application. To provide an effective learning experience for all participants, the program includes field trips, exhibits program, awards program, student program, and on-site employment services.
