Hawaii Coral Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program (CRAMP): benthic data from 1999 - 2001 (NCEI Accession 0000969)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

This dataset consists of CRAMP surveys taken in 1999-2001 and includes quantitative estimates of substrate type, species type, and percent coverage. Fish data are included in a separate submission. The types and coverages were derived objectively from photographic images using PointCount99, a software package which analyzes random points on images of coral reefs and substrate. This dataset does not include the images from video transects however these have been provided to NOAA separately. Photoquadrats are not included in this set. There are 32 survey sites, with 27 of these having both a shallow and deep transect. These sites are located on Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Kahoolawe, and Hawaii. Typically, one sampling date was made for each site per year. Annual surveys are scheduled at these sites and additional sites through at least 2002. This dataset replaces the ones given previously to NODC and identified with NODC Accession Numbers 0000757 and 0000513.
