Abstract

Effective management and monitoring of large marine protected areas requires detailed baseline data on distribution of benthic habitats (as a surrogate for marine biodiversity). Large areas with complex bathymetry and very clear waters such as the Ningaloo Marine Park (NMP) naturally lend themselves to the application of optical remote sensing as a means of gathering data on substrates and depth.
