For this study, a range of maritime habitats were considered and sites were chosen to assess the use of remote sensing methods on saline lagoons, inter-tidal mudflats, vegetated coastal shingle, saltmarsh and sand dunes. Factors affecting the status and extent of these habitats and an explanation of how remote sensing techniques could be employed to measure such attributes over time were included within the initial proposal. Three main areas of study were identified: data preparation and accuracy; image classification and habitat mapping; and morphological change.
