Title: Reef Resilience Scores - Field Descriptions
Short Name: Reef Resilience Field Descriptions
Status: Completed
Abstract:

Composite 11 Resilience Scores:

File provide scores for individual resilience metrics for the primary analysis with all 11 metrics. Raw scores from each of the individual metrics were scaled from 0.0 to 1.0, where 1 represents the healthiest condition in the study. Although it is not a metric used to analyze resilience, percent coral cover is provided as it is frequently used to evaluate reef status and prioritize management.

Composite 8 Resilience scores:

File provide scores for the secondary analysis with the eight metrics available for Taema Bank. Raw scores from each of the individual metrics were scaled from 0.0 to 1.0, where 1 represents the healthiest condition in the study. Although it is not a metric used to analyze resilience, percent coral cover is provided as it is frequently used to evaluate reef status and prioritize management.
