In parallell of the mid-term ESA Coastal Erosion meeting on 15 January 2020, a side-event on the topic “Earth observation for monitoring coastal erosion” will be hosted in Bordeaux the day before on Tuesday 14 January 2020.


The seminar is at destination of coastal managers in charge of coastal erosion and shoreline management at local, regional and national levels. Our motivation is to bring in the same room remote sensing specialists, coastal scientists and managers having main concern on shoreline monitoring and management. The seminar will focus on how satellite observations and derived geo-information products can bring added value to everyday and long-term shoreline management.

Concrete examples of how satellite data are currently used in monitoring programs will be presented by a panel of coastal observers. It will be completed by the first
public release of “Space for Shore” satellite products produced in the frame of the ESA Coastal Erosion project.

3 sessions are organized :

(1) current practises for shoreline monitoring in France and some european countries
(2) pioneer use of satellite data for coastal erosion : some examples
(3) Round table : fostering the use of satellite data in support to coastal erosion planning
