Satellites to help scientists detect & count stranded whales from space
New research finds analysing satellite images could help scientists detect & count stranded whales from space. Researchers tested a new detection method using VHR satellite images from space tech company Maxar Technologies. It's hoped that in the future the technique will lead to real-time info as stranding events happen. This study could revolutionise how stranded whales that are dead or beached, are detected in remote places.
