Abstract

Conventional field mapping has shown that the important eelgrass biotope on the shallow sea bottom of the Swedish West Coast has decreased 58% in the last 10-15 years, with great regional variations. This study investigates the possibility to map and monitor eelgrass using satellite remote sensing. The test, using Landsat TM data from 2 dates (1989 and 2000), clearly indicates the potential of the technique, but further studies are needed before it is fully operational
