Citation
Abstract Earth Observation (EO) is the collection of information about the earth’s surface (including aquatic environments) using remote sensing tools, e.g. satellite imagery, aerial photography, drone footage, radars, sonars. Through the generation of products (e.g. maps, data visualisation), Earth Observation data can then be used to measure and monitor different features of the environment over time, which can feed into management and decision-making processes from the regional to local scale. EO data has the potential to reduce long-term costs and can be used as a tool to bridge the gaps between science and decision-making. The South Atlantic Environmental Research Institute (SAERI), together with its partners: the Joint Nature Conservation Committee, the Universidad de Magalleanes (UMAG); Universidad Santo Tomás (Santiago), Universidad de Chile and the University of Dundee, is developing a virtual centre of excellence to bring together providers and users of EO enabling them to work together on common problems to exploit EO in the South Atlantic and South American region. The Centre will include researchers, government bodies, NGOs, and the private sector.
