US Coral Reef Monitoring Data Summary 2018
The data summary report consists of a report for each of the priority geographic areas. The reports for each area have three sections: Human Connections, Coral Reefs and Reef Fish, and Ocean Chemistry and Temperature.
Human Connections: This section presents data from social surveys and secondary information sources on demographics, values, resource use, information sources; perceptions of resource condition, threats and severity; and, perceptions of reef management policies.
Coral Reefs and Reef Fish: This section presents data on benthic cover, adult and juvenile coral density, coral disease and coral mortality, the biomass and size-class distribution of reef fish, and the presence or absence of ESA-listed corals.
Ocean Chemistry and Temperature: This section presents data on aragonite saturation state, calcification accretion, pH, sub-surface temperature, and remotely sensed observations of temperature anomalies and thermal stress from NOAA Coral Reef Watch.
