On November 28, 2007, Dr. Richard C. Zimmerman of Department of Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Old Dominion University gave a guest lecture to the class of GEOL 365 Introduction to Remote Sensing and CERSER students. With a presentation entitled: “Benthic Ecology From Space: Using Remote Sensing to Understand Biogeochemical Fluxes in Nearshore Coastal Environments”, Dr. Zimmerman gave a review of research that he and his collaborators have been conducting in remote sensing of seagrass. They have developed remote sensing methods for estimating standing stork, primary production, as well as geochemical fluxes of nutrients in coastal ecosystems. Dr. Zimmerman also discussed the advantages and limitations of airborne hyperspectral and space borne multispectral sensors for remote sensing of seagrass.
