LabISA

LabISA was created in late 2013 by researchers from the Earth Observation Coordination (OBT) of the National Institute for Space Research (INPE). It was motivated by the increasing number of studies focused on: the application of remote sensing for assessing physical, chemical and biological properties of inland waters; by recent technological advances and by the growing demand of the rational use of fresh water. Within this context, the OBT/INPE acquired, funded by FAPESP, CNPq and ANEEL / FURNAS, a set of equipment to carry out optical and limnological measurements in Brazilian aquatic environments.

Activities

The main laboratory activity focus on gathering in situ data on optical (AOPs & IOPs) and limnological properties of Brazilian inland and coastal waters for:

  1. To build a database of Brazilian inland waters for bio-optical characterization and to support studies in aquatic environments;
  2. Develop and calibrate bio-optical algorithms to estimate water quality parameters from remote sensing;
  3. Develop studies to evaluate the impacts of anthropogenic activities on the degradation of water resources (eutrophication, pollution, biodiversity, etc.);
  4. Validate acquired orbital data on aquatic environments; and
  5. To train human resources in an extremely relevant line of research for the monitoring of aquatic environments.

LabISA also seeks the continued training of human resources in order to expand the research group skills and foster the advancement of an even incipient field in Brazil.
