Abstract

In the State Oceanographic Institute – SOI, a “Spring Waters – 2002” experiment was carried out in 2002. It included monitoring of the seasonal natural processes in the Caspian Sea coastal zone and river deltas applying daily remote sensing data (RSD) of medium resolution, received by TERRA-MODIS satellite platform. Uniqueness of experiment concerned combined usage and analysis in real time mode of daily RSD and daily hydrometeorological data collected over the standard observation network. The following items were monitored during the experiment:

  • Process of spring flood wave propagation in the Lower Volga;
  • Hydrological regime of the Volga delta and its shallow offshore zone during flood period;
  • Catastrophic summer flush in the Terek delta.
