Equipment Used
Map underwater resources (corals, bottom habitat) and evaluate water
properties in the waters off Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park,
Pu'ukohola Heiau National Historic Site, and Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National
Historical Park. Collection of underwater video and bottom photography; CTD
Information to be Derived
Benthic habitat/seafloor characterization; water temperature and
Collect geographically referenced underwater video, photographic, and
CTD data for the primary purpose of documenting the offshore resources
including coral reefs and other benthic habitats.
Also used NPS whaler and kayaks.
