Purpose
The scientific purpose of this field activity was to evaluate three different
methods of quantifying submerged vegetation (particularly seagrass) in the
turbid, shallow coastal areas of Everglades NP.  We sought to compare the
logistical feasibility and the data quality resulting from boat-mounted
photographic imagery (the Along Track Reef Imaging System (ATRIS)),
acoustics-based surveying (Biosonics), and in situ field surveying.
Information to be Derived
Photographic imagery of submerged vegetation from the ATRIS, sonic return
signal data from acoustics-based surveying, and percent cover of benthos by
seagrass and algae using the Braun-Blanquet quadrat method.
Summary
ATRIS data were collected in Whitewater Bay, Biosonics data were collected in
Ponce de Leon Bay, and percent cover data were collected at 25 sites from Hog
key south to Cape Sable.
