Sediment processes on the coral reefs of Kahoolawe: a rapid field assessment in 1993 (NODC Accession 0000883)

The nearshore coral ecosystems of Kahoolawe were rapidly assessed in 1993. Surveys were made of the coral coverage, fish communities, and sediment types from 19 locations. This data has been published in a technical report (Jokiel et. al, 1995) and a PhD Dissertation (Te, 2000).
