Monitoring of coral reef ecosystems on the Island of Hawaii from 22 May 1999 to 25 May 1999 through the Quantitative Underwater Ecological Surveying Techniques (QUEST) project (NCEI Accession 0000264)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

In an effort to detect spatial and temporal changes in the structure of the coral reef community, coral coverage and reef fish density and diversity were documented at selected sites along the coastline of the Big Island of Hawaii using standard transect methodology and SCUBA. The data were collected as training for students within the Quantitative Underwater Ecological Surveying Techniques (QUEST) Program of the Kalakaua Marine Educational Center at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Several sites have been established. This database contains surveys for Puako and Mahukona from 1992 - 1999. Because of the disparity of experience among the student observers, this data set contains a much higher margin of error than like surveys by professional coral reef scientists.
