Substrate and species data from Coral Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program (CRAMP) Rapid Assessment Transect surveys from 2006 in the coastal waters of Hawaii, 22 June - 12 December 2006 (NODC Accession 0039383)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This dataset consists of CRAMP Rapid Assessment Transect surveys taken in 2006 and includes quantitative estimates of substrate type and species. In 2006, there were 8 sites surveyed on Maui. Surveys typically consist of shallow (~3m) and deep (~10m) lines. 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.

Still images related to the quantitative estimates in this data collection are accessible in NODC Accession 0039627 at https://accession.nodc.noaa.gov/0039627.

Purpose: To understand the ecology of Hawaiian coral reefs in relation to other geographic areas and to monitor change at each given site.
