The habitat mapping of the Great Barrier Reef, 200 reefs in Cairns Management region, is going full steam ahead!
The mapping combine’s satellite remote sensing imagery (Landsat) with ecological modelling and mapping rules to create geomorphic zonation (e.g. slope, crest, lagoon), benthic composition (e.g. coral, algae, rock, sand) and coral type maps (e.g. plate, branching, massive corals) and is a collaboration with Marine Spatial Ecology lab, and Engineering at UQ, AIMS, JCU, GBRMPA and EOMAP.Read More
