    Coastal remote sensing applications are regularly confined to single image 'snapshot' approaches which do not resolve the dynamic processes in the required temporal resolution. This paper reports the results of a project in which the dynamics of tidal sedimentation were monitored by multi-temporal airborne remote sensing in 10 minute time steps. The radiance data was then converted to estimates of suspended particulate matter loading by the inversion of a hydro-optical analytical model. The results demonstrate that multi-temporal coastal remote sensing can provide information about such dynamic processes that realistically can not be obtained by field-based research methods.
