Gulf Estuarine Research Society Biennial Meeting
When: November 8-9, 2012
Where: Dauphin Island Sea Lab- Dauphin Island, AL
A special keynote and session will address application of ocean sensing technology to nearshore and estuarine ecology along with our usual suite of broad estuarine topics (urbanization, nutrient loading, trophic ecology, physiology, molecular biology, oil spill studies, marine mammals, fisheries, and more).
Dr. Schaeffer's research focuses on use of satellite remote sensing technology to monitor water quality. His research interests include deriving water quality parameters using satellites such as SeaWiFS, MODIS, MERIS, and HICO on the International Space Station. Field efforts have included the deployments of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) within state waters, Remote Environmental Monitoring Units (REMUS) in estuaries, boat surveys, and moorings to measure optical properties.
