Hardly cutting edge!  Didn't Randall do something in the 1960's looking at photos of reefs and establishing the existence of a bare patch behind barrier reef and around patch reef.  I think he thought you could use the width of the band as a rough proxy for reef health.

Marine ecologists take to the skies to study coral reefs.  Satellites and research aeroplanes could offer a better, broader view of coral health.
