Description:
Abstract:
NOAA's National Undersea Research Center for the Caribbean Marine Research Center, Perry Institure for Marine Science, for the Caribbean region explores and studies the waters in the wider Caribbean marine environment. The center is located at Lee Stocking Island in the Exuma Cays and was chosen for its proximity to the U.S. and wide range of marine habitats with minimal human impacts. Research supported at Lee Stocking Island is based on the premise that studying minimally impacted coral reefs is an ideal means to develop baseline conditions, as well as targets for restoration, for coral reefs in areas heavily impacted by anthropogenic factors such as the Florida Keys and elsewhere throughout the Caribbean.
Purpose:
The coral reef research program is centered on the long term study and understanding of shallow and deep coral reef ecosystems. These programs include studies of coral reef ecology, physical oceanography, monitoring of coral health, genetic diversity of corals, monitoring of seawater temperatures and currents, monitoring of meteorological parameters, and coring of ancient coral reefs to establish a paleoclimate history of coral growth and survival related to natural climate changes.
