The aim of my research is to map mangrove forest health through hyperspectral remote sensing data. It is expected that results of this research will contribute to protecting the ecosystem services of mangroves; with a better understanding of the effects of mangrove stressors on this ecosystem at a landscape level and providing decision makers a methodology for early detection of mangrove degradation, more accurate management intervention can take place.
