This study presents a new global baseline of mangrove extent for 2010 and has been released as the first output of the Global Mangrove Watch (GMW) initiative. This is the first study to apply a globally consistent and automated method for mapping mangroves, identifying a global extent of 137,600 km 2 . The overall accuracy for mangrove extent was 94.0% with a 99% likelihood that the true value is between 93.6–94.5%, using 53,878 accuracy points across 20 sites distributed globally. Using the… 

Global Mangrove Watch: Updated 2010 Mangrove Forest Extent (v2.5)

This study presents an updated global mangrove forest baseline for 2010: Global Mangrove Watch (GMW) v2.5. The previous GMW maps (v2.0) of the mangrove extent are currently considered the most

Global Mangrove Extent Change 1996-2020: Global Mangrove Watch Version 3.0

Mangroves are a globally important ecosystem that provides a wide range of ecosystem system services, such as carbon capture and storage, coastal protection and fisheries enhancement. Mangroves have

Mapping Mangrove Extent and Change: A Globally Applicable Approach

This study demonstrates a globally applicable method for monitoring mangrove forest extent at high spatial resolution using a novel map-to-image change method that makes fewer assumptions of the data, is less sensitive to variation between scenes due to environmental factors and is able to automatically identify a change threshold.

Brazilian Mangrove Status: Three Decades of Satellite Data Analysis

A Google Earth Engine-managed pipeline is presented to compute the annual status of Brazilian mangroves from 1985 to 2018, along with a new spectral index, the Modular Mangrove Recognition Index (MMRI), which has been specifically designed to better discriminate mangrove forests from the surrounding vegetation.

Mapping mangrove alliances using historical data in Fiji

The mapping of mangrove alliance distributions is limited because of lack of training data and inaccessibility of sites. Mapping mangrove alliances is important for monitoring carbon storage as well

Improved estimates of mangrove cover and change reveal catastrophic deforestation in Myanmar

Mangroves are one of the world’s most threatened ecosystems, and Myanmar is regarded as the current mangrove deforestation hotspot globally. Here, we use multi-sensor satellite data and Intensity

Regional Distribution and Change Dynamics of Mangroves in México between 1970/80 and 2015

We use the maps elaborated within the Mexican Mangrove Monitoring System (MMMS) project of the National Commission for Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity (CONABIO) to analyze the changes in mangrove

Mapping the Philippines’ Mangrove Forests Using Landsat Imagery

This study mapped the spatial distribution and areal extent of the Philippines’ mangroves circa 2000 and indicates the total area of mangrove forest cover was approximately 256,185 hectares circa 2000 with overall classification accuracy and a kappa coefficient of 0.926.

World Atlas of Mangroves

The World Atlas of Mangroves is a comprehensive, well-written, ambitious, and artistic work that should be part of any serious wetland library and useful to researchers or students new to the field.

Creation of a high spatio-temporal resolution global database of continuous mangrove forest cover for the 21st century (CGMFC-21)

The new database, CGMFC-21, provides a standardized spatial dataset that monitors mangrove deforestation globally at high spatio-temporal resolutions and can be used to drive the mangroves research agenda, particularly as it pertains to monitoring ofMangrove carbon stocks and the establishment of baseline local Mangrove forest inventories required for payment for ecosystem service initiatives.

Distribution and drivers of global mangrove forest change, 1996–2010

The primary driver of anthropogenic mangrove loss was found to be the conversion ofMangrove to aquaculture/agriculture, although substantial advance of mangroves was also evident in many regions.
