NOAA CRCP recently released a set of Local Manager Reports summarizing estimates of coral reef ecological resilience and social vulnerability for the US Pacific. Drawing from a broad ecological data from the NOAA National Coral Reef Monitoring Program and social data from the American Community Survey, these reports provide comparable estimate of resilience and social vulnerability across the entire US Pacific. They breakdown both metrics into their component parts, and highlight geographic distinction within and among Pacific regions.
Extending the results of these reports, NOAA researchers compare the resilience metrics to a diversity of other metrics for prioritizing management actions under a regime of resilience-based-management (RBM). Using efficiency frontier analysis, they show that the resilience metrics provide a robust method of prioritizing effort in RBM that successfully generates "win-win" tradeoffs across a diversity of concerns.
