Hawaii Institute for Marine Biology and NOAA National Ocean Service, Marine Sanctuary Program Partnership, in affiliation with the Coral Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program, 2007 Survey of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands Coral Reef Ecosystem Reserve: Digital Still Images (NCEI Accession 0052882)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

Rapid Assessment Transects were conducted in 2007 in the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument of the Northwest Hawaiian Islands Coral Reef Ecosystem Reserve. The surveys were led by Dr. Paul Jokiel and Mr. Erik Franklin along various depth contours at 7 unique atolls or islands. This dataset consists of digital still transect images (JPG files). Digital images are important for future researchers to resolve any questions about how the image data were interpreted for the quantitative database, to provide the opportunity to re-analyze the images using other methods, and to return to the same locations for future comparisons.

In a separate NODC Accession (0000881), benthic data for substrate types and coverages are given, which were derived objectively from these photographic images using PhotoGrid, a software package which analyzes random points on images of coral reefs and substrate.
