Research Papers

A scientific research paper entitled “Integrating Inland and Coastal Water Quality Data for Actionable Knowledge”, was published on July 23, 2021 by the Remote Sensing journal.

HiSea partner, Deltares, has contributed to a publication that propose an integration framework to provide information to user communities through the the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) AquaWatch Initiative.

The initiative aims to develop and build the global capacity and utility of water quality data, products, and information to support equitable and inclusive access for water resource management, policy and decision making.

A scientific paper entitled “Remote Sensing-Based Automatic Detection of Shoreline Position: A Case Study in Apulia Region”, was published on May 26, 2021 by the Journal of Marine Science and Engineering.

The paper, written by HiSea partner, Deltares, concluded that remote sensing and satellite imagery have become commonplace in efforts to monitor and model various biological and physical characteristics of the Earth. 

On 2020, Deltares has contributed to a publication on the assessment of uncertainty for seawater temperature using ensemble simulation.

The coastal 3D hydrodynamic model aiming at simulating seawater temperature is the one developed during the HiSea project for the southern Aegean Sea, using the Delft3D Flexible Mesh modeling tool. The simulated seawater temperature has been validated against in situ measurements provided by Selonda.

A paper entitled “Improvement of an Operational Forecasting System for Extreme Tidal Events in Santos Estuary (Brazil)”, was published on December 10, 2019 on Geosciences.

The paper, written by Joana Mendes and João Dias of Portugal’s University of Aveiro, together with Paulo Leitão, José Chambel Leitão, Sofia Bartolomeu and João Rodrigues of HiSea partner Hidromod, incorporates research related to HiSea project as a source of funding.
