HCBC Analysis Ready Clustered Data from the Hawaiian Archipelago 2019 Bleaching Event (NCEI Accession 0239862)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The analysis-ready data described here result from performing hierarchical clustering of individual coral bleaching surveys conducted across the Hawaiian Archipelago in 2014, 2015, and 2019. In order to resolve issues of spatial autocorrelation, the surveys were grouped into distinct clusters with a spatial resolution of 1km. The data was stratified across depths to generate metrics for up to three depth bins per cluster: shallow (0-6m), mid (>6-18m), and deep (>18m). This dataset contains environmental data paired for all 2019 observations, used to analyze drivers of the coral bleaching event. No environmental drivers data is included for 2015 and 2014 observations, as the data from these bleaching events was solely used in a temporal analysis comparing the 2014/2015 events to the 2019 event. This dataset also contains weights assigned to each observation (all years) for use in the drivers, temporal and spatial analyses.

Processing Steps
  • Parameter or Variable: CORAL - BLEACHING (calculated); Units: percent; Observation Category: other; Sampling Instrument: N/A; Sampling and Analyzing Method: Divers recorded the mean percent of living coral cover that was partially or fully bleached (0-100%; e.g. 5% bleached cover) per survey. All observations within a 1km spatial resolution (cluster) were then averaged..
  • Parameter or Variable: environmental drivers (calculated); Units: N/A; Observation Category: other; Sampling Instrument: N/A; Sampling and Analyzing Method: Environmental data derived from satellite and in-situ surveys were paired with coral bleaching data in order to analyze what the main drivers of the 2019 bleaching event in Hawaii were..
