    BAS technique to detect stranded whales from space

    The researchers studied satellite images covering thousands of kilometers of coastline, which provided an early insight into the extent of the mortality. Satellite image: Maxar Technologies

    A new technique for analyzing satellite images may help scientists detect and count stranded whales from space. Researchers tested a new detection method using Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite images from Maxar Technologies of the biggest mass stranding of baleen whales yet recorded.  It is hoped that in the future the technique will lead to real-time information as stranding events happen.
