Hawaii: Revisited Survey
Pacific Ocean Expedition: Survey 2
The team first surveyed Hawaii in August 2015, gathering important baseline information ahead of the current global bleaching event. During the August survey, there were some initial signs of bleaching, and we’re now back in Hawaiian waters re-visiting the exact same locations in order to capture the height of coral bleaching.
By re-surveying Hawaii right now, our team will yield very valuable scientific results on the heat susceptibilities of different corals, and provide insights into the severity of the bleaching event.
