The project was part of the Northern Australia Hub of the National Environmental Research Program, which was supported by the Australian Government.

The method was designed for subtidal seagrass monitoring where depth and water clarity make regular monitoring using only a viewing bucket impossible and where in-water monitoring/sampling is not advisable due to the possible presence of dangerous animals like saltwater crocodile and sharks. It is designed to be used in conjunction with a data collection application created using CyberTracker software, the I-Tracker Seagrass Mapping and Monitoring application

Th I-Tracker Seagrass Mapping and Monitoring Application was created using CyberTracker software. You will need CyberTracker Version 3.372 or later to use this application.

Subtidal Seagrass Monitoring Methods and ID Book

The I-Tracker Seagrass Mapping and Monitoring Application allows rangers to collect information on three different types of seagrass work:

  • intertidal monitoring;
  • seagrass mapping; and
  • subtidal monitoring.

The Subtidal Seagrass Monitoring Methods and ID book will assist with using the subtidal monitoring section of this application.

The project through which this application was developed is part of the Northern Australia hub of the National Environmental Research Program, which is supported by the Australian Government.
