Abstract:

From 2003 to 2009, SERDP funded the development of two technologies for assessing and monitoring coral reef health 1 high-resolution millimeter scale video-mosaicing technology, capable of rapidly surveying and providing a permanent visual record for benthic areas over 100s of square meters in size University of Miami and 2 advanced bio-optical techniques for non-destructive assessment of selective natural and anthropogenic stresses using fluorescence induction and relaxation sensors Rutgers University. A SERDP-sponsored workshop was held at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, University of Miami Nov 18-19, 2008. The goals for the workshop were to 1 understand the DoD client perspective on benthic communitycoral reef assessment and monitoring needs 2 understand other potential user perspectives i.e., in addition to DoD regarding their coral reef monitoring and assessment needs and how the two SERDP-developed technologies may help address those needs and 3 identify how the two approachestechnologies are complementary to each other and how they might be integrated to meet end-user needs.
