CRAMP Study Sites: Island of Maui
The core of the work on Maui is a series of sites that have been monitored along permanent transect (fish and coral) annually for a period of up to 7 years through an Earthwatch Program under E. Brown. These sites are being continued under CRAMP along with additional sites. Wave energy impact and sand transport are being evaluated. This series was selected to test effects of urbanization, sedimentation, recreational use, wave exposure, coastal construction, and hurricane damage to Hawaiian reefs.
