Heron Reef

Category: Coral reef

Uploaded: Nov 25, 2013

Heron Reef (32 km^2) is located at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and has been a focus of coral reef research since the early 1900s. The reef contains Heron Island, which hosts one of the longest running, most significant, coral reef research stations in the world. One of the first large scale reef mapping projects in the world was developed on Heron Reef in the 1980s. Since the late 1990s the Biophysical Remote Sensing Group at the University of Queensland has developed and tested remote sensing applications on Heron Reef with collaborators from around Australia and the rest of the world.
