Underwater Observations with CORAL Campaign

Version imprimable de cet article

Coral Reef Airborne Laboratory, or CORAL, scientist Dr. Steve Dollar from the University of Hawaii takes photos of the reef floor. He will take about one thousand photos in a 10-meter-by-10-meter area and combine them into a single image. The image will be used to characterize, quantitatively, the coral community structure of that location. CORAL is in the first year of a three-year mission to survey a portion of the world’s coral reefs to assess their condition and understand the interplay of factors that influence their complex ecosystems.
