National Coral Reef Monitoring Program: Carbonate budget data collected in the Atlantic Ocean

browse graphicPreview graphic
This collection includes census based carbonate budget data that are collected in coral reef habitats in the Atlantic Ocean. These habitats include sites around Puerto Rico, Florida, and the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary. All surveys (based on Perry et al 2012) are conducted as part of NOAA’s ongoing National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP). Six transect surveys (10m each) are conducted at each site to quantify benthic cover, macrobioerosion, and microbioerosion. In addition, ten parrotfish surveys are conducted at each site to account for parrotfish erosion rates.

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 are responding to ocean acidification stress.
