Abstract
    This report is the result of the Unesco/COMAR remote sensing workshop held in Townville, Australia (19-26 August 1985, to introduce resource specialists, marine researchers and coastal zone, shallow sea managers to digital image processing of remotely sensed data and its applications in coral reef, oceanographic and estuarine studies. It contains an assessment of the workshop proceedings together with 14 papers dealing with project planning, the basic physics of marine remote sensing and remote sensing applications in coastal marine studies. Topics covered include project planning for remote sensing, biophysical considerations iin marine remote sensing, remote sensiing applications for coral reef, oceanographic and shallow water benthic studies and mapping, output product types and uses, digital and analogue data sources for the ASEAN South-West Pacific Regions, a micro-computer based image analysis system, a summary of the exercise project, and a review of potential applications in coastal marine remote sensing.
