Abstract:
The Ecosystem Sciences Division (ESD) of the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center monitors physical and chemical oceanographic conditions to investigate the long-term impacts of climate change and ocean acidification on coral reef ecosystems of the U.S.-affiliated Pacific islands. These research efforts have established temporal and spatial baselines that are being used to understand changes over time. During the 2018 Pacific Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program (Pacific RAMP) research expedition, ESD completed climate impact assessment surveys in American Samoa. This summary report provides a brief overview of survey effort and preliminary data.
