Collaboration on work involving Sargassum in the GoM
January 9, 2012
4:01 pm

The Remote Sensing Lab at the Institute of Ocean Sciences in Sidney, BC has been monitoring the quantities and movement of pelagic Sargassum from space in the Gulf of Mexico for the past several years and would like continue and expand on this work.  For the RFP-II we need to collaborate with a US instition.  We have demonstrated an annual cycle which suggests the Gulf is a primary nursery ground for the largest Sargassum population observed from space (Gower et al., 2005; Gower and King, 2011).  Future work might include continued monitoring from space, expanding the time series to include multiple satellite sensors and relating the observed Sargassum satellite time series to wind speed and measurements of surface drift.  Areas for collaboration might include studies on pelagic species, sensitive ecosystems and oil spill mitigation.
