LIDAR elevation model Climate Change Climate and Weather: Ecology Ecosystem Water salinity wetlands

Fugro Spatial Solutions (FSS) were awarded a contract by Geoscience Australia to carry out an Aerial LiDAR Survey over the Kakadu National Park. The data will be used to examine the potential impacts of climate change and sea level rise on the West Alligator, South Alligator, East Alligator River systems and other minor areas. The project area was flight planned using parameters as specified. A FSS aircraft and aircrew were mobilised to site and the project area was captured using a Leica ALS60 system positioned using a DGPS base-station at Darwin airport. The Darwin base-station was positioned by DGPS observations from local control stations. A ground control survey was carried out by FSS surveyors to determine ground positions and heights for control and check points throughout the area. All data was returned to FSS office in Perth and processed. The deliverable datasets were generated and supplied to Geoscience Australia with this metadata information.

About this Project

1177.2 Northern NERP - Remote Sensing

There is limited biological data from across the remote and inaccessible northern Australian coastline that can be used to inform bioregional planning processes, development approvals and, ultimately, biodiversity conservation. Habitat availability and biophysical factors such as water depth, light availability and turbidity are important determina... more
