Remote assessment of kelp dynamics
PIs Siegel, Gaines, Kyriakidas, Zimmerman (ODU) and Hill (ODU) received new funding from NASA to develop a predictive understanding of kelp canopy cover, biomass, productivity and canopy condition using SPOT imagery along with metapopulation and bio-optical modeling. They will integrate their results with measures of disturbance and other evnvironmental factors to develop a unified remote assessment of kelp dynamics for the nearshore waters off California.
