Workpackage 4

In situ remote sensing of geodiversity for habitat mapping

Task 4.1: Repetitive opto-acoustic acquisition of stone reefs, sandbanks, and bubble reefs

Task 4.2: Developing geological and geomorphological models

Task 4.3: Developing best-practice for mapping and monitoring geodiversity

Objectives of workpackage 4

  • Feasibility study of LiDAR versus MBES for seabed classification
  • Morphometric analyses of larger scale areas
  • Development of a geodiversity catalogue and correlation of geodiversity with underlying geology, morphodynamics and hydrodynamics
