About This Project

Kelp forests are a prominent feature along the world’s coastlines in temperate and subpolar regions. However, increasing ocean temperatures are threatening the persistence of these highly productive ecosystems. We propose to develop a new method to estimate the density of kelp forests using underwater sound. If successful, this rapid, acoustic-based assessment method could enable the continuous monitoring of the health of these brown macroalgae in the face of climate change.
