Project Outline:

This project provided an understanding of the recent mangrove die-off in northern Australia and the resilience of mangrove ecosystems to extreme climate event using remote sensing data. The research outcomes will provide great benefit to land managers in developing appropriate conservation planning of mangrove ecosystems. This knowledge gained will not only useful for Australia but also for Vietnam, which has high mangrove biodiversity but is faced with the increased frequency and severity of droughts.
