Need for a definition of the “edge” of a seagrass bed: The edge is the basis for: 1. Total acreage of seagrass. 2. Change detection, both by groundbased transects and mapping from aerial photos. 3. Seagrass restoration targets; assessments of progress may be based on a comparison of the deep edge of grass beds to the target depth.
