Automated Coastal Monitoring Systems Market: Introduction

Oceans not only supply food but also provide biophysical resources and function as a form of transportation. They are a vital aspect in the formation of weather systems, carbon dioxide storage and maintaining the hydrological balance of the earth. Coastlines are sensitive interfaces between land and ocean and react to the changes caused by land usage patterns. A significant part of the human population lives near coastal areas, which has affected the coastal zone due to prevailing stress from human activities. The government needs to control the impact of human activities in the coastal regions for which they need data information systems that can monitor and report diverse changes such as erosion of the coastal bed, effluents and pollution and loss of natural habitat.

Many dynamics of the ocean and the resulting changes in the coastal areas can be monitored, mapped and controlled with effective techniques such as automated remote sensing. Few applications of remote sensing include identification of ocean currents, gravity waves, eddies, upswells and downswells, storm forecasting, internal waves, water temperature monitoring, extent of oil spill, storm and tidal effects, etc. Monitoring the coastlines is helpful to understand severe weather conditions. The data and corresponding computer accessed models could provide long-term key information on the actuation and impact of these adverse conditions, which can help in formulating the necessary recovery  measures. Many automated systems have been pioneered including remote cameras, hydrographic surveys and video analysis. The remote sensing techniques (airborna, land based and satellite) provide mappable data. These include hyperspectral and multispectral imaging, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), microwave sensors and airborne Light Detection and Ranging Technology (LIDAR). Remote sensing is cost-efficient with reduced manual errors. The global automated coastal monitoring systems market is likely to witness better growth potential during the forcast period.

Automated Coastal Monitoring Systems Market: Drivers, Trends and Restraints

The awareness and increased priority to understand network centric operations or net-centric warfare, survivability quotient, awareness of adverse situations, qualitative naval superiority, tidal effects, adverse toxic and pollutant effects, and impacts due to urbanisation are few of the drivers facilitating the adoption of automated coastal monitoring techniques inturn having an impact on the global automated coastal monitoring systems market. The video images provided by the monitoring systems give the necessary information that is used in deriving coastal state indicators (CSI), which would have a positive impact on navigation, coastal protection and ecosystem protection. This emphasizes the significance of the monitoring systems providing better opportunities for automation in coastal monitoring systems thereby stimulating the growth of the global automated coastal monitoring systems market. However, the scarcity of necessary resources to manage the dynamically changing technological enviornment might impact the growth of the global automated coastal monitoring systems market.
