Benthic Habitat Mapping of Majuro, Republic of the Marshall Islands

Region(s) of Study: Waterbodies / Pacific Ocean
Primary Contact(s): matt.kendall@noaa.gov

A benthic habitat map of coral reef ecosystems around Majuro, an atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands was developed. The maps were created from satellite images and depict coral reefs, seagrass, sand, reef flats, and other ecosystem features in the shallow waters of the atoll. Benthic maps are foundational tools for monitoring, conservation, development planning, stock assessments and other management actions.
