IMaRS focuses on marine biodiversity

Remote Sensing, a necessary tool for studying biodiversity at effective scales

Dr. Frank Muller Karger and his group at the Institute for Marine Remote Sensing collaborate with a larger network of scientists and resource managers to catalog biodiversity as it has never been done before: with consistency of data from region to region and at scales that reveal the important connectivity among the gradient of marine habitats.
