The biologically diverse coral reefs surrounding Pulau Fordata (Tanimbar Archipelago, Indonesia) support an important part of the livelihoods of the local people. The unsustainable use of this natural resource, however, has led to its deterioration, especially around the main island. The general objective of this project, therefore, is the development of an efficient monitoring system for coral reef ecosystems based on hyperspectral remote sensing information in order to enhance the sustainable development of small island communities like on Pulau Fordata. More specifically, it aims to assess the condition of the coral reef benthic cover in the Pulau Fordata region using CASI hyperspectral data, to create a bathymetric model of the reef structures, and to develop generic data processing techniques and algorithms which can be applied to coral reefs worldwide.
