Coastal Monitoring

Experts agree: the world's coastlines are at risk. With ecosystems that include estuaries and wetlands, coral reefs and mangroves, the world's coastal habitats contain a wealth of resources. They are the spawning grounds for fish and shellfish; they are recreational outlets and tourist destinations; they provide natural buffers from flooding caused by hurricanes and other large storms. Helping coastal scientists protect these habitats, Fugro EarthData offers numerous geospatial services related to coastal monitoring, including wetlands mapping, submerged aquatic vegetation mapping, and sea-level rise impact studies. From these datasets, scientists can better understand and mitigate the threats now facing our coastlines.
