(1) Coral Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program

Principal investigator: Paul L. Jokiel, Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology

See the CRAMP website for more information

Sponsor: Hawai'i Coral Reef Initiative Research Program

CRAMP is a state-wide monitoring program that uses a standardized protocol to document spatial variability and temporal change in coral cover at selected sites. Additional components such as algal cover, patterns in fish density and biomass will be sampled to elucidate relationships between these various factors over space and time. These results will be integrated with past and future projects to provide a clearer consensus on historical trends for management. 

Sites surveyed: Hanalei Bay, Ha'ena, Po'ipu, Miloli’i, Nu’alolo Kai

Status: ongoing since 1998
