The report aims to show how temporal data can be extracted from sequential photography and reduced to useful information about the dynamic distribution of suspended sediment and phytoplankton in coastal water. Specifically the objectives were to identify what time-dependent coastal features can be sequentially sensed and detected at various time scales, to develop interpretation techniques and analytical procedures for analyses of dynamic features from sequential photography, to relate these features to water masses and circulatory distributions of microplankton populations and sediment load to utilize the analytical procedures on a series of test sites representing different environments in the Chesapeake region to demonstrate application to features that require monitoring.
