DEIMOS-1 Image of the week (acquired 22/01/2015): Grand Bahama Island

The Grand Bahama Island, its coral reef and shallow waters are visible in this Deimos-1 image acquired yesterday. The Bahamas islands are rich in biodiversity and comprehend marine protected areas (MPAs) which aim to conserve shallow coral reef ecosystems, including associated seagrass meadows, mangroves, and other lagoon habitats. Climate Change effects such as sea level rise, warmer air and ocean surface, could seriously affect the fragile and vulnerable islands ecosystem.
