"This remarkable book, Coral Reef Remote Sensing: A Guide for Mapping, Monitoring and Management, for the first time documents the full range of remote sensing systems, methodologies and measurement capabilities essential to understanding more fully the status and changes over time of coral reefs globally. Such information is essential and provides the foundation for policy development and for implementing management strategies to protect these critically endangered ecosystems. ... Included here is an overview of technologies for reef mapping, technical information useful for scientists and other research and policy development experts, ideas for application of remote sensing to resolve questions, and thoughts about future remote sensing technologies and their applications. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to scientists, students, managers, remote sensing specialists and anyone who would like to be inspired by the ingenious new ways that have been developed and are being applied to solve one of the world’s greatest challenges: how to take care of the ocean that takes care of us."
