How can the roughness of oyster reefs be described? In our new publication in frontiers in Marine Science on "Oyster Reef Surfaces in the Central Wadden Sea: Intra-Reef Classification and Comprehensive Statistical Description" we quantify the topographic roughness of oyster reefs based on in-situ Structure-from-Motion photogrammetry. The publication is the first of the BIVA-WATT project in collaboration with the Institute of Structural Design of the TU Braunschweig, the Ludwig Franzius Institute of Hydraulic and Estuarine and Coastal Engineering of the Leibnitz University Hannover and Senckenberg am Meer.
The paper was published on 09th of March 2022 in frontiers in Marine Science under the research topic "Coastal Biogeomorphology".
