Article
Full-text available
The use of very high-resolution (VHR) optical satellites is gaining momentum in the field of wildlife monitoring, particularly for whales, as this technology is showing potential for monitoring the less studied regions. However, surveying large areas using VHR optical satellite imagery requires the development of automated systems to detect targets...

The study of cetacean strandings was globally recognised as a priority topic at the 2019 World Marine Mammal Conference, in recognition of its importance for understanding the threats to cetacean communities and, more broadly, the threats to ecosystem and human health. Rising multifaceted anthropogenic and environmental threats across the globe, as...

The emergence of very high-resolution (VHR) satellite imagery (less than 1 m spatial resolution) is creating new opportunities within the fields of ecology and conservation biology. The advancement of sub-meter resolution imagery has provided greater confidence in the detection and identification of features on the ground, broadening the realm of p...

Project
To develop the use of very high resolution satellite imagery and artificial intelligence tools to study cetacean mass strandings and ocean health.
Project
The aim of this project is to investigate the application of Very High Resolution (VHR) resolution satellite imagery (WorldView-3 platform) to detect whales in Antarctica, and begin to consider this technique alongside traditional ship-borne methods for estimating density and abundance.
