Monitoring Pacific Coast Salt Marshes Using Remote Sensing

  title={Monitoring Pacific Coast Salt Marshes Using Remote Sensing},
  author={Minsi Zhang and Susan L. Ustin and Eli{\vs}ka Rejm{\'a}nkov{\'a} and Eric W. Sanderson},
The rapid decline in the extent and health of coastal salt marshes has created a need for nondestructive methods for evaluating the condition of salt marsh ecosystems. This paper describes simultaneous uses of field sampling and remote sensing approaches to understand salt marsh ecosystem functions and species distributions and discusses the implications for salt marsh monitoring using remote sensing. Three sites along the Petaluma River near the entrance into San Pablo Bay, California, which… CONTINUE READING
