Abstract

The Earth Observing System (EOS) of the mid-1990's will offer a broad range of data which will be useful in studies of coral reef fisheries. The HIRIS sensor will offer data from more than thirty wavelength bands which penetrate seawater. This instrument should be able to descriminate among broad groups of photosynthetic pigments, particulate content, and a variety of benthic fish habitats. Other instruments will be useful in monitoring variability in the environments of coral reefs by quantifying wave heights, sea surface temperatures, solar incidence, precipitation, and a variety of other factors. Low-cost aerial verification survey methods are needed to enable coral reef scientists in developing countries to utilize EOS data. Additional aspects of the subject are discussed.
