As climate change and human activities intensify, environmental problems such as declining water quality and eutrophication in lakes, rivers and coastal zones are increasingly prominent on a global scale. How to accurately obtain the spatiotemporal dynamic information of environmental elements of inland and coastal zones on a global scale, and evaluate the potential mechanisms of water environmental problems, is a key issue that urgently needs to be solved for efficient comprehensive management of water environment and is also the core content of achieving the United Nations' sustainable development goals. This talk will introduce how to use multi-source satellite remote sensing data to carry out long-term dynamic research on key parameters such as the surface water extent, temperature, and algal blooms in lakes and coastal zones on a global scale.
