Coral reef digital still images and benthic species of the Hawaii Coral Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program (CRAMP) on Maui in 2015 (NCEI Accession 0157539)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This data set consists of digitial still images along coral reef transect lines, from which quantitative benthic data are derived from select images via PhotoGrid, a software package that analyzes random points on digital still images of coral reefs and substrate. The benthic data include substrate type and species identification. A total of 19 transects of the Hawaii Coral Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program (CRAMP) took place 2015-06-09 to 2015-08-05 at 10 sites on Maui. Most sites consist of two transects along different isobaths-- shallow (~2-4m) and deep (~7-13m) lines. CRAMP has surveyed state-wide coral reefs quasi-annually since 1999 with all historic sets archived at NOAA/NESDIS/NCEI.
