Predicted Coral Cover in the Hawaiian Islands

Metadata Updated: November 10, 2023

Output from a model to predict the total benthic cover of six coral species (Montipora capitata, Montipora flabellata, Montipora patulla, Porites lobata, Porites compressa, Porites meandrina) in the Hawaiian Islands as a proportion (0-1.0). Coral cover was modeled with boosted regression trees (BRT) in R software using data from coral cover surveys and environmental covariates derived from models and/or observations including wave height, benthic geomorphology, and downwelled irradiance. The best performing BRT model was used to predict coral cover for the entire geographic study domain. Data and model output represent conditions for shallow coral reefs in the Hawaiian Islands from 0 m to -30 m depth over the time period 2000-2009. Further details on methodology and results are contained in Franklin et al. (2013).
