General Description

 

What data/products do you use?

ROV surveys and multibeam to describe deep-water coral and other vulnerable seabed habitat

When do you use this kind of dataset?

During environmental impact assessments (EIAs), oil spill response, environmental damage assessment

What are your actual limitations and do you have a work around? 

ROV and multibeam surveys are expensive and time consuming

Needs and expectations on EO data

Not sure, EO capabilities can address this as it requires penetration to ocean floor and species and/or habitat identification
