FAO: SD : Environment : Mapping coastal aquaculture and fisheries structures by satellite imaging radar: Case study of the Lingayen Gulf, the Philippines
Satellite imaging radar (SAR) data are unique for this task not only for their inherent all-weather capabilities (very important as aquaculture and mariculture activities mainly occur in tropical and subtropical areas) but essentially because the backscatter from the structure components allows for their identification and separation from other features.
The area selected and object of the study is the Lingayen Gulf, situated in Northwestern Luzon Island, the Philippines, where all these structures of interest occur.
