Description:
Abstract:
This map displays optical validation observation locations and percent coverage of scleractinian coral overlaid on bathymetry and landsat imagery. Optical data were collected by CRED TOAD camera sled aboard NOAA ship Oscar Elton Sette cruise SE0807, and aboard NOAA ship Hi'ialakai cruise HA0905. Data were also collected with Hawaii Undersea Research Laboratory's (HURL) RCV-150 remotely operated vehicle (ROV) on HURL R/V Ka'imikai-o-Kanaloa cruise's KOK0409, KOK0209, and KOK1207.
Purpose:
To display locations of optical validation data in the Auau Channel, Hawaii, collected by CRED TOAD camera sled and HURL RCV-150 ROV, and the percent coverage of living scleractinian coral along them.
Supplemental_Information:
The Auau Channel, located between the islands of Maui and Lanai and also protected by Molokai to the north, and Kahoolawe to the south, is bounded by the latitudes 20.983 and 20.733 and the longitudes 156.633 and 156.858. Topography of channel consists of solution basins and rims (ridges), sediment plains and reef pinnacles on the channel floor, which were subaerially exposed during late Quaternary lowstands of sea level. Holocene reef growth occurs as a thin veneer on topographic highs in the Channel. The channel reaches depths of 140 m, however the majority of the seafloor is between 55 m and 70 m deep. The Auau Channel has been documented to include abundant coral reefs at these depths, which are also known as mesophotic coral ecosystems.
