About this Event

You are invited to attend the DNRME speaker series – Mapping and monitoring the world’s coral reefs from space live stream event with Dr Emma Kennedy.

Delivered in partnership with IPAA Queensland, this live stream will be held on Tuesday 20 October 2020.

Advances in satellite imaging, processing power, analytical abilities and knowledge of coral reefs has finally made the goal of mapping the planet’s coral reefs achievable. Despite several attempts to capture the diversity and distribution of shallow-water reefs since the 1800s, to date no reef map exists that offers complete global coverage at such a high level of geo-ecological detail.

CubeSat imagery and cloud-based processing are being used by UQ's Remote Sensing Research Centre and collaborators to deliver state-of-the-art spatial products to support coral reef science, monitoring, management and conservation. In this presentation, Dr Emma Kennedy will introduce the who, what, how and why of mapping the planet’s coral reefs from space.

Register by 5.00 pm on Monday 19 October 2020 to secure your virtual seat. In DNRME, we are committed to delivering inclusive and accessible events.
