Detailed Description

USGS studies the growth rates of corals at a network of coral growth assessment stations throughout Buck Island National Monument in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. These data provide resource managers with information needed to understand how coral populations are doing in the park. This work will be used by partners at the National Park Service to prioritize areas for increased protection and restoration efforts.
