Advanced Remote Sensing Methods for Coastal Science and Management

Introduction

Fractal graph of the ocean floor near Navassa Island

The Advanced Remote Sensing Methods for Coastal Science and Management project focuses on developing algorithms for characterizing and classifying features on the seafloor using data collected by both airborne and underwater instrumentation. Examples include quantifying benthic habitat complexity from images, modeling the structural complexity of the seafloor, and using fluorescence signatures to classify coral reef habitats.
