Hawaii Coral Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program (CRAMP): Benthic Data from Rapid Assessment Transects 2001-2004 (NODC Accession 0002464)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This dataset consists of CRAMP Rapid Assessment Transect surveys taken in 2001-2004 and includes quantitative estimates of substrate type and species. The types and coverages were derived objectively from photographic images using PhotoGrid, a software package which analyzes random points on images of coral reefs and substrate. This dataset does not include the images from the transects, which have been provided to NOAA separately. In 2002, there were 57 lines surveyed at 28 sites. Due to funding cuts, the number of surveys dropped to 8 in 2003 and 5 in 2004. Surveys typically consist of shallow (~3m) and deep (~10m) lines. This dataset contains surveys from 20 sites.
