This paper investigates the utility of multispectral Landsat Thematic Mapper satellite data for documenting changes to a Caribbean coastal zone using the change vector analysis processing technique. The area of study was the coastal region near the village of Buen Hombre on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. The primary habitats of interest were the intertidal mangrove forests, and the shallow water seagrasses, macroalgae, and coral reefs. The advantages and limitations of the technique for coastal inventories are discussed. -from Authors
