Surveying baleen whales in the Gulf of St. Lawrence using VHR satellite imagery
My PhD project aims to develop an automated census method using VHR satellite imagery and deep learning algorithms to automatically detect, identify, and count whales in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. This methodology can be used to answer important biological questions about the distribution and conservation of right whales and other baleen whale species.
