Item Identification

Title: Ocean and Climate Change
Short Name: Ocean and Climate Change
Status: In Work

The oceanography team of the Coral Reef Ecosystem Division (CRED) monitors coral reef ecosystem health through deployment of long-term moored buoys with data telemetry and subsurface moorings, shipboard sensors, connectivity, temperature, and depth (CTD) casts, water sampling, and hydraulic and pneumatic collection of coral cores. The deployed oceanographic instruments directly measure physical and chemical ocean parameters. All of these monitoring techniques are deployed under the auspices of CRED's Pacific Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program and the Coral Reef Conservation Program's new National Coral Reef Monitoring Plan.

Supplemental Information:

The oceanography team collects data through a variety of methods with additional detail outlined in this paper on in situ oceanographic observations (Hoeke et al. 2009).
