Welcome to the MOMENTS Project Page
This project aims to understand and quantify the factors controlling the lateral non-linear dynamics of mangrove forest change rates, and the consequent variation of their associated ecosystem services in Vietnam and Indonesia. The MOMENTS project will develop a near real time satellite based remote sensing monitoring system, which, combined with field and experimental data, modelling tipping points, and remote sensing analysis, will help elucidate mangrove critical tipping points, allow countries to understand and anticipate changes in mangrove extent, and their associated ecosystem services.
National and local governments, NGOs and coastal communities will benefit through the provision of evidence and methods to quantify the value of mangroves and their restoration, facilitating successful management strategies.
