CORAL RESTORATION MONITORING
Monitoring coral restoration efforts is essential to promote effective restoration techniques and to quantify success. In this working group, we ask the following questions. How do we efficiently scale up restoration monitoring? What are the data needed to determine success (or failure) of restoration efforts?
The working group’s Core Team is led by Chair Shay Viehman (NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science).
Our priorities for the 2020-2025 timeframe include:
The CRC is actively searching for a new Chair and/or Co-Chairs. This Chair will have the opportunity to define the Monitoring Working Groups priorities based on CRC overall priorities.
