Description:
Abstract:
This dataset is a collection of imagery of Buck Island coral reef systems. They are pairs of imagery where one image was acquired during a suspected bleaching event. The second is a control image taken at some point prior to the event. The images are co-located and radiometrically calibrated for comparison. The difference images are analyzed for evidence of bleaching.

Additional information on methodology can be found here: <http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/dmsp/coral/methodology.html>

Purpose:
These data were analyzed with the purpose of developing a semi-automated quantitative measure of coral reef bleaching.
