A NOAA-supported analysis of California’s Morro Bay estuary found links between seagrass collapse and later erosion that will inform bay-area adaptation strategies and could influence global seagrass conservation strategies. NV5 Geospatial provided a full update of elevation data for Morro Bay from an integration of topobathymetric lidar and sonar technologies. Read the full story here.
