Coastal dynamics research in the Wider Caribbean

Partner: John Norrman, Dept of Geosciences, Uppsala

The project has been based on, or supported by, remote sensing information, and included the following items:

  • Identification of some specific ooid generating areas and estimation of the status of surrounding shores.
  • Identification of transport forms.
  • Identification of erosion, transport and accumulation areas associated with oolitic and non-oolitic areas.
  • Determination of transport directions and intensity.
  • Evaluation of the estimations within the coastal zone based on remote sensing.
  • Evaluation of the usefulness of available remote sensing data for land-use and land-cover mapping, particularly with respect to agriculture and forestry.
