NOAA Research

  • Identifies where and what kind of intervention is needed – mapping & assessment.
  • Expands management options – tool & technology development.
  • Guides implementation of these management programs – socioeconomics.
  • Tracks and evaluates our success – monitoring.
why are we doing this plan
Why are we doing this plan?

This plan is to support the

NOAA Programs

that conduct

coral activities

  • The Research Plan will be used to guide all

NOAA Coral Programs that conduct research

  • Improve the link between science and management.
slide4
The goal of

NOAA Coral Reef Ecosystems Research

is to provide managers with scientific understanding and tools to protect and manage coral reef ecosystems.

  • What actions need to taken?
  • What are the information needs of managers to support and evaluate their actions?

NOAA CRE Research Plan

  • ITMEMS1 and ITMEMS2
  • Implications for Coral Reef Management and Policy, 9th ICRS
  • NOAA’s State of the Coral Reef Ecosystems
  • NOAA offices – ie. NOAA Fisheries and Sanctuaries
  • NCRI and NCORE conferences
  • International – i.e. AIMS National Research Priorities
coral reef research priorities will be driven by
Coral Reef Research Prioritieswill be driven by…
  • The Coral Reef Conservation Act of 2000:
    • National Coral Reef Action Strategy(2002)
    • The State of Coral Reef Ecosystems of the United States and Pacific Freely Associated States
  • U.S. Coral Reef Task Force
    • The National Action Plan to Conserve Coral Reefs (2000)
    • Improved Prioritization of needs in Oct. 2002 to a threat-based focus:
      • Land-based sources of pollution
      • Overfishing
      • Climate change, Coral bleaching, and Coral Disease
    • Local Action Strategies
  • Regional Research Priorities
    • Atlantic vs. Pacific
