Description
This report describes the results of applying remote sensing methods to floodplain vegetation monitoring in Kakadu National Park, NT. Visualising the spatial distribution of aquatic benthic habitats is essential to our understanding of these ecosystems and to our ability to provide early management intervention. This requires objective, repeatable processing pathways of earth observation data. - Executive summary; Made available via the Publications (Legal Deposit) Act 2004 (NT).
