Archiving of CRAMP Survey Data

Data being taken at all CRAMP sites is deposited annually in the National Oceanographic Data Center. CRAMP is currently working closely with Mr. Patrick Caldwell, NOAA/NODC Hawai‘i  /Pacific Liaison, Honolulu, Hawai‘i  (http//ilikai.soest.Hawai‘i.edu/UHSLC/caldhome.html) to achieve this goal.

A unique aspect is that we will archive the digital images of each transect along with the quantitative data. This will provide a permanent record of the benthos that can be used in the future generations of scientists.  Scientists can resurvey the exact sites (using GPS and the stainless steel marker pins) and use the images to resolve any question about how the image data were interpreted or can re-analyze the images using other methods.
