Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) meeting for research collaboration and knowledge dissemination

Coastal zone planning and management is largely a state/territory responsibility, with day-to-day decision making the responsibility of local governments. However, the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) Thailand has an important influence on coastal environmental policy and planning for sustanable development of Thailand coastal areas and communities. The first meeting of RESCuE project between…

Field survey – Trat Province of Thailand

29/12/2018 Our monitoring work of the Spatiotemporal Dynamics of Mangrove Forest Zonation Process and Structure in the Trat Province of Thailand continues to highlight the long-term interest in Mangrove Forest Restoration. The RESCuE project passed a significant milestone with the first transect line survey that was performed over a two week period at the end…

Mangrove Ecosystem Monitoring System: Wireless Field Router and SNR Sensors

3/11/2018 As part of the RESCuE project, researchers measure the environmental, phenological and spectral values of a mangrove forest to determine how the mangrove ecosystem is changing and how best to proceed with restoration efforts. To determine how the mangrove ecosystem is changing, given the harsh environments that are likely to be encountered, the project…

Kick-off meeting

8 – 12/3/2018 The mangrove forest provides many beneficial goods and services but also pose a risk to coastal populations. However, current knowledge of mangrove forests in Thailand and Vietnam remains limited and highly uncertain for sustainable management and future rehabilitation such as species composition, carbon stock, height, density and canopy closure. The project RESCuE…
