Integration of Multi-Source Data to Monitor Coral Biodiversity

Authors: M. Jaroensutasinee, K. Jaroensutasinee, K. Jitkue, W. Srisang, C. Yaiprasert


This study aims at using multi-source data to monitor coral biodiversity and coral bleaching. We used coral reef at Racha Islands, Phuket as a study area. There were three sources of data: coral diversity, sensor based data and satellite data.

Keywords: Remote Sensing, Coral Reefs, Satellite Imagery, Sea surfacetemperatue
