Rationale

Comprehensive methods for monitoring and assessing changes in coral reef ecosystems are essential in developing effective management strategies for coral reefs, and obtaining a global view of the environmental and human stressors impacting them.

By consistently using the same procedures and protocols for the collection of data, and by cross-referencing this data to universal time and GPS coordinates, the Global Reef Project aims to create a unique and detailed database of coral reef ecosystem stressors.
The Global Reef Project is a scientific effort focused on collection of biogeochemical data from coral reefs and open-water ecosystems. It aims to develop a comprehensive, system-wide, and quality-controlled set of protocols for data sampling in collaboration with the scientific community.
