    Collection Overview: NCALM logo This dataset was collected as an NCALM Seed grant for PI Stephanie Garvis, University of Central Florida, in order to characterize sea grass beds along the coast of Florida, near Apalachicola, and parameterize storm surge and sea level rise models.

    This survey was performed with an Optech Titan multispectral airborne LiDAR sensor mounted in a twin-engine Piper PA-31-350 Navajo Chieftain (Tail Number N640WA).
