Monitoring and preserving grasslands in Almeria

SHARE

Spain: The Environmental Information Network of Andalusia has recently conducted seabed mapping through images secured from Proba satellite. The main purpose of this map is to create a profile and define the characteristics of the grasslands in the area of the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata-Nijar, and find out the potential of new habitats and at the same time monitor and preserve the seagrass meadows of Almeria. These maps are also useful for dive companies, divers, researchers and educators to know about the seabed of Almeria.
