Green-tide detection image in the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea by HY-1C satellite
The cover picture is the satellite inage of green-tide monitoring in theYellow Sea and the East China Sea acquired by Coastal Zone Imager (CZI) on-board HY-1C satellite. The red band and NIR band information with a 50 m resolution from the CZI could reveal the spatial distribution of the green-tide andestimate the total biomass of the green-tide in the typical coastal areas,which may provide a reasonable way of monitoring and predicting the green-tide disaster. Since thesuccessful launch of HY-1C on September 7,2018,large date sets have been collected including original data and standard products formore than four years. HY-1C satellite data have been used widely in both operational monitoring and scientific research, displaysing the excellent performance and consistent ability in time series. For the further developments of RS techniques in oceans and inland waters of applications,the special issue of Ocean Water Color Satellite Remote Sensing Application has been motivated by both NSOAS and the EditorialOffice of National of Remote Sensing Bulletin.Provideing credible satellite data and service to all related data users and government affiliations is the goal.
