    About This Project

    Ecology and Sustainable Management of Oceanic Islands
    On remote tropical islands, coral reefs can be affected by the impacts of strong waves and historical overfishing. This project will focus on the effects those impacts have on the coral reefs of Easter Island and Salas y Gómez. Imagery of the benthic communities will be recorded using advanced digital photomosaic technology, as described by Gintert et al., (2012). The images will provide data on the overall health of the coral reefs through time.
