At the biannual Ocean Science meeting, this year in New Orleans, Louisiana, Dr. Kevin Turpie hosted a community-wide Town Hall on Tues, Feb 23 regarding coastal and inland aquatic remote sensing applications of the NASA’s Hyperspectral Infrared Imager (HyspIRI) mission, now under development.  The Town Hall was also co-chaired by Dr. Woody Turner of NASA Headquarters and Dr. Liane Guild of NASA Ames Research Center. Dr. Turpie is the founding chair of the HyspIRI Aquatic Studies Group (ASG), an international community of practice with over 70 members worldwide.  The Town Hall featured an update on the HyspIRI mission and ASG activities, followed by a discussion on recent implementation and results of hyperspectral remote sensing  algorithms led by a panel of experts.

Turpie also co-chaired a four-part session on Tues, Feb 23 and Wed, Feb 24 titled, "Present and Future Coastal and Inland Aquatic Remote Sensing for Science and Societal Benefits," with Dr. Curtiss Davis of Oregon State University, Dr. Jorge Vasquez of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Dr. Wes Mos of the Naval Research Laboratory.  In addition, he orally presented the following paper promoting the HyspIRI mission for wetland remote sensing applications:

K.R. Turpie, V.V. Klemas, K. Byrd, M. Kelly, Y-H. Jo, "The Hyperspectral Infrared Imager (HyspIRI) and Global Observations or Tidal Wetlands."
