Description

This data set contains both coral demographic data and roving diver surveys conducted on October 9 – 18, 2017 to assess the impacts of Hurricane Irma on sections of the Florida Reef Tract. A total of 57 sites were completed, from Biscayne Bay to the Marquesas. Six of the sites were within Biscayne National Park, with the remainder in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. The following types of benthic surveys were conducted: 1) Roving diver surveys to document broad-scale impact types and severity and disease occurrence, including photo and video documentation; and 2) Detailed Disturbance Response Monitoring (DRM) 1×10 m belt transects to document demographic information and condition of every coral.
