Marine ecology

Research Area: Ecology - conservation

Acquiring knowledge on the distribution and behaviour of marine species and habitats is often challenging, therefore, our work uses a variety of remote data collection technologies, such as satellite tracking, video, thermal IR, and active and passive acoustics for underwater noise assessment, habitat discrimination and fisheries biomass estimation.

We place a strong focus on computation biology, earth observation remote sensing and modelling to improve understanding and capacity to manage human activities at sea.
