Projects

  • Mapping Coral Thermal Toughness Across American Samoa

    This project provides data for a growing atlas of coral thermal "toughness" across reef sites in American Samoa, a better understanding of the effects of management actions on coral thermal resistance, a first-generation regional model of the evolution of these critical thermal thresholds, and informs and engages local communities of these issues.

  • San Francisco Bay Shallow Water Mapping

    Ultra-shallow water habitats were mapped at high priority locations in San Francisco Bay. A post-project USV demonstration indicated that it will be a valuable tool for mapping other bays and estuaries along the California coast. These data are a crucial piece of the modeling effort being undertaken by the State as it plans for sea level rise is urban coastal communities.
