New frontiers of remote sensing for reef management

Remote sensing provides valuable tools that resource managers can use at all stages of coral reef conservation.  The Remote Sensing Working Group of the Coral Reef Targeted Research & Capacity Building for Management (CRTR) Program, has been working to enhance remote sensing tools to better enable coral reef management, and as part of their work, have recently released a Research Update on how to measure stress on coral reefs and mapping reefs and spatial-decision making, along with the available tools to assist managers.
