A transition from traditional mangrove remote sensing to recent advances: Mapping and monitoring

A transition from traditional mangrove remote sensing to recent advances: Mapping and monitoring

Remote sensing has been using for decades for mangrove studies as it provides the only means to quantitatively assess mangroves continuously over space and time. This research aims to develop and implement remote sensing techniques for mapping and assessing the health of mangrove forests in Darwin Harbour. In addition, it will develop a statistically sound, spatial and temporal model that harmonizes development and conservation around Darwin Harbour to overcome challenges of mangroves monitoring.
