Coral reefs are suffering damage due to climate change and other factors and restoring them is hard and costly. Marine biologists have been 'outplanting' nursery-grown corals for decades. But these are very sensitive to a harsh environment. Remote sensing can help find the best locations where such corals can thrive.
