C-WAMS (2012-2014) Coastal Water Attribute Monitoring from Satellite data.  Techworks Marine Ltd led this project with partners Planetek Hellas. The specific aims were to use Earth Observation data for regional water quality monitoring in the coastal zone and to develop systems to provide commercial and non-commercial sectors with value added satellite data products. Water quality in the coastal region is of global concern, and our aim was to support government, commercial and NGO actors in this sector. Trial cases were carried out, one with a wastewater treatment plant in Ireland, and in the United Arab Emirates with a desalination plant and an environmental protection agency. By understanding specific user issues and requirements we have developed services which can be used globally to monitor coastal water quality for different sectors and applications.
