Baseline Mapping for Mangrove Monitoring in the Coastal Bend, Texas Gulf Coast
The University of Texas at Austin, Bureau of Economic Geology will conduct a study to 1) provide a baseline from which to monitor the spread of mangroves in the Texas Coastal Bend; 2) establish methods and procedures for mangrove mapping through the automatic classification of hyperspectral imagery; and 3) expand upon previous wetland status and trends studies, funded through the Coastal Management Program, to analyze historical changes in the location and amount of mangrove in the coastal bend.
Coastal Natural Hazards Response
Commencement of work on this project is contingent upon approval from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
