The eReefs program monitors the Great Barrier Reef using satellite sensors high above the planet’s surface and from a unique marine observatory far below located in coastal waters of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
Understanding human impact on the water cycle is a tricky business – one clue is to be found in evapotranspiration. Novel use of satellite data is helping us measure something we can’t see.
In Northern Australia, researchers have Gamba grass in their sights. They’re applying cutting-edge advances in satellite, airborne and terrestrial remote sensing along with emerging tools in computer vision and machine learning to address environmental challenges such as invasive species.
There’s a high-tech tool increasingly available to farmers from Australia to Africa – remote sensing data from satellites. And they don’t even have to leave the paddock.
