Earth observation offers effective spatial and temporal coverage to monitor coral reefs, enhancing in situ monitoring. Effective monitoring requires that significant substratum features be detectable by a sensor. This is affected by the sensor spectral resolution and the depth and composition of the water column. Most historical multispectral satellite sensors are incapable of effectively resolving reef substrata at depth. We quantified the level to which substrata can be resolved by sensors… CONTINUE READING
