A Suite of Field Manuals for Marine Sampling to Monitor Australian Waters.
One of the main challenges in assessing marine biodiversity is the lack of consistent approaches to monitor it. This threatens to undermine ocean best practice in marine monitoring, as it impedes a reduction in the bias ...
Comparison of sampling methods to assess benthic marine biodiversity. Are spatial and ecological relationships consistent among sampling gear?
(Geoscience Australia, Canberra, Australia, 2015)
Marine benthic biodiversity can be measured using a range of sampling methods, including benthic sleds or trawls, grabs, and imaging systems, each of which targets a particular community or habitat. Due to the high cost ...
CATAMI classification scheme for scoring marine biota and sub-strata in underwater imagery. Version 1.4.
(National Environmental Research Program, Marine Biodiversity Hub, Canberra, Australia, 2014)
Transforming raw underwater imagery into quantitative information useful for science and policy decisions requires substantial manual effort by human experts. This process will soon become unsustainable as the volume of ...
A Standardised Vocabulary for Identifying Benthic Biota and Substrata from Underwater Imagery: The CATAMI Classification Scheme.
Imagery collected by still and video cameras is an increasingly important tool for minimal impact, repeatable observations in the marine environment. Data generated from imagery includes identification, annotation and ...
