This report provides a synopsis of material presented in the workshop on current and future capabilities for remote sensing of estuaries. Clearly, this topic was not covered exhaustively in a workshop of this scale. Rather the meeting highlighted existing technologies and approaches that have direct bearing on management needs for ChesapeakeBay and that have shown promise when applied to estuarine and coastal waters and the watersheds that border them. Recommendations that enmerged in the discussions coalesce into several categories: 1) expand and better itegrate in-situ technologies; 2) expand the use of aircraft and satellite-based sensors; 2) increase the use of landsat imagery; and 4) improve and expand wetlands mapping.
