Jimmy Bramante, MSc (2015)
Thesis Title: Quantifying Recent Trends in Seagrass Cover and Biomass in a Stressed Environment, Pulau Semakau, Singapore
Although my thesis primarily focused on seagrass monitoring and remote sensing techniques, my research interests had a broader range. In general I was building limited prior research to connect the health and distribution of coastal organisms to their coastal environments. This allowed me to indulge in some eclectic methods, from harvesting seagrass, to counting phytoplankton, measuring distance with stereo imaging, manually identifying and measuring thousands of corals from video transects, supervised classification of low resolution satellite images, non-linear optimization of hyperspectral reflectance models.
