Abstract

We present an approach to field-based remote sensing of the spatial variation of chlorophyll (as an index of microphytobenthic biomass) in intertidal soft sediments using digital colourinfrared imagery. Variation in amounts of chlorophyll a was quantified from small (cm) to large (100 m) scales within a single tidal cycle, using levels of replication and resolution that would be difficult to achieve using conventional sampling strategies. Eight scales of interest were selected: 100, 50, 2 and 1 m, and 40, 8, 4 and
