State-of-the-art image analysis and remote video camera equipment at UWA’s Centre for Marine Futures is revolutionising our knowledge of WA’s marine environment.
With unparalleled capability in speed and accuracy of image processing, together with detailed habitat maps and a fish archive of more than 5,000 images, these facilities make it faster, easier, safer and more cost-effective for industry to run dredging monitoring programs.
“Our video systems can work at depths to 500 metres, far exceeding depths that divers can safely sample,”
says Professor Jessica Meeuwig.
“Industry can use this capability to reduce any potential impacts on the marine environment.”
