Project IC5_II - Trends of habitat patchiness in acoustic seafloor classification data

The building of marine infrastructures, land reclamation, capital and maintenance dredging cause significant changes in hydrodynamic and sedimentary regimes that often lead to modification or loss of habitat in coastal marine areas. This is particularly true for tidal environments where tidal and wave processes govern the delicate erosion-deposition equilibrium.
