The study comprises an assessment of remote sensing for the monitoring of sediment plumes in Singapore using SPOT imagery and constitutes a pilot study for a larger project using multi-date and multi-sensor imagery to apply the techniques to other coastal waters in south-east Asia. Examination of the spectral characteristics of turbid material in shallow water is complemented by the input of bathymetric data in the context of a raster GIS. Observations suggest that correction for the depth variable in the detection of coastal sediment may be facilitated by information on changing environmental conditions in the local area.
