Use of remote sensing and GIS in monitoring water quality.


Usali, Norsaliza and Ismail, Mohd Hasmadi (2010) Use of remote sensing and GIS in monitoring water quality. Journal of Sustainable Development, 3 (3). pp. 228-238. ISSN 1913-9063


The use of remote sensing and GIS in water monitoring and management has been long recognized. This paper however discusses the application of remote sensing and GIS specifically in monitoring water quality parameter such as suspended matter, phytoplankton, turbidity, and dissolved organic matter. In fact the capability of this technology offers great tools of how the water quality monitoring and managing can be operationalised in this country. Potential application and management is identified in promoting concept of sustainable water resource management. In conclusion remote sensing and GIS technologies coupled with computer modelling are useful tools in providing a solution for future water resources planning and management to government especially in formulating policy related to water quality.
