Hub researchers and Indigenous rangers have been working hard on the Gulf of Carpentaria’s coastline to assess mangrove recovery following the 2015 dieback event.
The assessing mangrove dieback in the Gulf research team, led by Dr Norm Duke, has aerially surveyed 2,633km of coastline and taken 57,925 photos to record mangrove condition! During field surveys to validate data in the NT and Qld, Dr Duke’s team recorded detailed elevation levels across the tidal profile, and measured more than 10,000 trees and shrubs – alive and dead. See more of these field activities in this video.
This project is now on the home-stretch to its completion later this year, and you can read more about completed activities and the remaining tasks in this update.
