Abstract

In order to monitor changes caused by local and global human actions to a coral reef ecosystem, we "sea-truthed' a natural color Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) image prepared for a coastal region of the northwestern Dominican Republic and recorded average water depth, precise geographical positions, and bottom types (seagrass, 15 sites; coral reef, ten sites; and sand, six sites). -from Authors
