  • Description:
    "A workshop was held in Miami, Florida on October 22-24, 1979, to discuss the potential for using the Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) in ecological fisheries research. The Northeast and Southeast Fisheries Centers, who co-hosted the workshop, have common interests in remote sensing and ecological studies. A recent significant increase in interest by NOAA agencies in the application of remote sensing to marine studies has been spurred by: 1) the newly recognized need for synoptic data covering large areas for fishery ecosystem studies; and 2) new break-throughs by the National Environmental Satellite Service (NESS) on the interpretation of CZCS data to determine concentrations of chlorophyll and suspended particulate matter. The workshop recommended a joint research effort on the part. Of the Northeast and Southeast Fisheries Centers and other interested agencies, such as NESS and the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) of the NOAA Environmental Resource Laboratories (ERL), to take advantage of the CZCS. The workshop recommended immediate action"--Executive summary.
