Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows:

  • The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc. The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript.


Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first four digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B…0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

The conference chairs would like to thank the participants who attended the Remote Sensing of the Ocean, Sea Ice, Coastal Waters, and Large Water Regions conference held in Toulouse, France. We want to particularly thank the new authors, students, and all others who made the extra effort to travel despite the many travel restrictions currently in effect.

The papers reviewed and accepted for publication in this book represent contributions that are helping to improve the global knowledge and scientific understanding of remote sensing, physical oceanography, and marine and environmental systems in general. These accepted papers represent, in most cases, the significant efforts of our colleagues, including new methods for monitoring and surveillance in aquatic systems.

Several excellent papers discuss air-sea interaction, sea ice, cross calibration of satellite scatterometers, and new sensing methods in turbid coastal waters.

We thank the session chairs for their participation and assistance in conducting the conference as well as the authors who presented their outstanding work during the poster sessions. The chairs welcome the attendees to our next conference to be held in Scotland in 2016.

Special thanks go to the efforts of the SPIE staff for organizing the conference and for their assistance and patience supporting the review process and publication of the selected papers.
