ABSTRACT
Applications of the remote sensing to the coastal environmental monitoring as a main tool of an Integrate coastal management includes certain types of imagery on the coastal ecosystem/habitats changes, as well synoptic data on sea water, temperature, salinity, and components for a better understanding of the chlorophyll/plankton and fish/invertebrate distributions, as well as marine modeling forecast data. A system of RS&GIS techniques can be a dynamic tool for the coastal managers and decision makers. Such system is one of the main results of recent/ongoing national projects, and certain results of it will be presented in relation with several data and information evaluation activities [3]. Also, the work presents several approaches and results on coastal remote sensing and spatial analysis techniques implementation in a certain case studies, towards an erosion and coastal waters quality control. The coastal variability at the sea-land interface, for a period of several decades, has been revisited on the basis of the historical remote sensing images/maps, and obtained results were the base of an online Coastal Atlas for the Romanian Black Sea Coast.
