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.
