National Coral Reef Monitoring Program: Carbonate Budget data of a coral reef in Puerto Rico from 2017-06-19 to 2017-06-20 (NCEI Accession 0176572)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This archive package contains census-based carbonate budget data that was collected from a coral reef habitat located in Puerto Rico. Surveys (based on Perry et al. 2012) were conducted at La Parguera coral reef. Six transect surveys (10m each) were conducted to quantify benthic cover, macrobioerosion, and microbioerosion. Ten parrotfish surveys were also conducted to account for parrotfish erosion rates. This carbonate budget data along with other sea water chemistry data were collected at a long-term monitoring site during a NOAA Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological (AOML), Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) led NCRMP mission. Sea water chemistry data are archived separately.

Purpose The NOAA National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP) details a long-term approach to provide an ecosystem perspective via monitoring climate, fish, benthic, and socioeconomic variables in a consistent and integrated manner. The NCRMP is intended to coordinate various NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) biological, physical, and human dimensions activities into a cohesive NOAA-wide effort. Through the implementation of the NCRMP, NOAA will be able to clearly and concisely communicate results of national-scale monitoring to national, state, and territorial policy makers, resource managers, and the public on a periodic basis. To support a long-term Coral Reef Conservation Program for sustainable management and conservation of coral reef ecosystems carbonate budget data—along with other data collected at the survey sites (archived separately under NCRMP)—are used to help scientists assess and understand how coral reefs monitored by the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) are responding to ocean acidification stress.
