ASSESSMENT OF THE AREAL DISTRIBUTION OF SUBMERGED AQUATIC VEGETATION USING REMOTE SENSING IN DANISH COASTAL WATERS

Research output: Book/anthology/dissertation/reportReportResearch

Abstract

The use of different types of remote sensing data to acquire information on the distribution and
cover of marine underwater vegetation was examined in two Danish fjord systems for the period 2017-2023. Promising results including high resolution vegetation mapping, differentiation of vegetation types as well as different algorithms for improved cover and area classification were investigated. Results from classifications and estimates of areal coverage were combined with modelling to develop novel eelgrass indicators of ecological status, which were evaluated against existing indicators. Recommendations for large-scale implementation of remote sensing as a promising tool to map and monitor marine vegetation are provided.
