Dear Raymond N. Sambrotto
Using remote sensing data, lot of work has been done on the
coral reefs of India. Particularly using Landsat TM, Indian
Remote Sensing Satellite 1A, 1B and 1C. For the study of coral
reefs health (condition) high resolution data is required.
If you need further information I will be glad to give you.
I have been able to map coral reefs zones (ecological and
morphological) and condition by way of monitoring over a period
of say 10 years or more and the delineation of certain associated
features, for e.g. mud over reef - degraded condition
live coral zones, wide reef flat, etc. - good
The mapping was done using the above data on 1:50,000 as well
as 1:25,000 scale.
