Benthic habitats of the coral reef ecosystem on the south shore of Moloka'i

Metadata Updated: February 22, 2019

A benthic habitat polygon coverage has been created of the coral reef ecosystem on the south shore of Moloka'i. Polygons were hand-digitized from visual interpretation of aerial photography and SHOALS bathymetry data. We also utilized in situ knowledge from towed instruments, underwater photography and videography, and diver and snorkeler observations. The polygons have attributes for Main Structure/Substrate, Dominant Structure/Substrate, Major Biological Cover, Percent of Major Biological Cover, Reef Zone, and Unique ID, and measurements of acreage, area (m2) and perimeter (m) of each polygon.
