Remote Sensing Used to Study Barr Al Hikman Ecosystem

In order to promote environmental awareness and conservation, and subsequently to promote scientific tourism in the area, the Remote Sensing & Geographical Information System Centre at Sultan Qaboos University will study the intertidal ecosystem of Barr Al Hikman, an area famous for abundant birdlife, turtle habitat and passage of dolphins and whales. The research project entitled ‘Remote sensing and geospatial data analysis of Barr Al Hikman intertidal ecosystem: Implications of cascading predator-prey effects in a pristine seagrass-based food web’ proposed by SQU’s research centre has been approved for funding by The Research Council. The three-year project will be a collaborative effort between SQU and NIOZ, Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research. Read More
