Masters Drone project



Mr Christophe Delpont, from the University of Montpellier, France, in the framework of his Master’s programme in Aquatic Bio-Resources in Tropical and Mediterranean Environments, undertook a drone mapping exercise of coastal habitats at the University of Seychelles from February– July 2017, using BERI’s drone. During his internship Mr Delpont combined remote sensing imagery and water quality analysis to his specific area of interest, ecosystems management (fisheries ecosystem-based approach, ecology and project management). This work was possible through the support of the Blue Economy Department and aligns with research strategies of BERI to develop baseline assessments and evidence-based decision-making protocols in the area of coastal and marine systems
