Remote sensing is now recognised as a suitable and cost-effective technique for describing and quantifying aspects of coastal water quality of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). As a component of Paddock to Reef (link) reporting, water quality estimates retrieved from the MODIS Aqua satellite time series are compared to regionally-specific environmental values and objectives set in 2009 for each of five water bodies identified in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area (GBRWHA).
