Hello everyone, my team and I are utilizing Planet data for reef assessment in Buccoo Reef, Tobago. Reefs in the Caribbean region have suffered a substantial loss of 60% - 80% since 1970s and Tobago have been severely affected. We hope to use our results to implement monitoring and management strategies for the Buccoo Reef. 

Here is a similar paper that I’ve found using Planet Dove Satellites for reef assessment:


Excited to post our results soon!
