Defining Satellite Sensor Requirements for Monitoring Essential Biodiversity Variables of Coastal Ecosystems

Current and planned satellites are not designed to observe the Essential Biodiversity Variables that change rapidly. This new peer-reviewed paper in Ecological Applications by MBON researchers outlines the technical specifications for a new generation of satellite sensors to collect data necessary for observing EBVs.
