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.
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
