The Remote Sensing Research Centre is focussing studies at Eastern Banks, Moreton Bay, Queensland to understand the biophysical characteristics of seagrass in space and time since 1999. The project develops approaches to map and monitor the seagrass species composition, biomass and percentage cover at various spatial scales.

This study integrates high spatial resolution image data, field data and pixel and object based image processing approaches.
