|Submarine canyon reveals the role of corals in capturing carbon from the atmosphere|
Coastal mapping programmes are quickly becoming a priority for government and agencies and scientific organizations worldwide and the current context of global changes (enhanced environmental dynamism and large-scale human sea use) induces new challenges for digital mapping. The need to better define and understand the land/sea interface is based on several interrelated factors, includi...
Remote sensing, combining a series of platforms and sensors, including satellite imagery, aerial drone surveys, multi-beam swath mapping, side-scan sonar and drop and towed video, (including from remotely operated underwater vehicle [ROV]), provides sophisticated new capacity for the characterization of coastal and nearshore habitats. This proposal builds on the recent complementary dev...
This project aims the study of morphosedimentary characteristics of a coastal region of the Estuarine complex of Suape Harbour - Pernambuco State, Brazil. The analisys will focus on the relationship between the physical and geological parameters with the local biodiversity and the determination of new methods of coastal monitoring and management based on remote sensing and GIS framewor...

The present project aims the evaluation and analysis of the effectiveness of different methodologies for the classification of high resolution satellite images of commercial (World View III) and also free access (Google Earth), thus helping to characterize patterns of coastal and marine habitats. The study area will be the intralagunar region of Suape Industrial Port Complex (PE). It is...
Submarine canyons are dynamic environments that support diverse biological communities including fisheries. Recent work on the Irish Porcupine Bank Canyon (PBC), a natural laboratory isolated from terrigenous input, has revealed extensive speciose, high biomass cold-water coral (CWC) structural habitats. This "big science" project uses Irish state-of-the-art and new innovative marine ex...
