Coral Fluorescence - Belize
Globally, coral reefs are experiencing significant impacts from climate change and direct human activities. Photogrammetry provides an ideal tool for both rapid impact assessments and long-term monitoring. Successive surveys can build up picture of change, allowing quantification of both growth and erosion on multiple scales.
Quantification of coral recruitment is an important factor in determining the growth potential of a coral reef. Tritonia Scientific developed a novel system combining fluorescence imaging techniques with photogrammetry in order to quantify coral recruitment in complex and cryptic environments.
