Name050101 - Remote Sensing as a Tool for IM of Coral Reefs in the Red Sea by T. Vanderstraete and al.
Description

 

Some examples are given of remote sensingderived

coral reef data, which form baseline information

for the creation and management of a marine protected

area (MPA) in the Red Sea. The importance of a

Geographic Information System (GIS) for the collection

and analysis of the different data layers is also shown.

The example is given of a risk assessment map for the

study area (Hurghada, Egypt) that indicates the marine,

coastal areas which are under different levels of risk of

being degraded by human activity. This map supports

managers and other userí’s groups to determine which

coral reef systems are best suited to form the core area of

a multi-use MPA.
