Our four-year fieldwork campaign in Saudi Arabian coastal waters (2006-09) was a collaborative effort embracing the Foundation’s Science Without Borders┬« Program. Our first destination in the Red Sea was the Farasan Islands in 2006, followed by Ras Qisbah in 2007, Al Wajh and Yanbu in 2008, and Farasan Bank in 2009.

Through out the Red Sea campaign, we combined sophisticated remote sensing technologies (satellite and aircraft sensors) with field surveys to generate the raw data that would later be processed into our Red Sea Atlas. These resulting high-resolution maps open up a world of possibilities for use in coastal zone management, resource monitoring, future scientific research, and other uses limited only by imagination.
