Marine Ecology Monitoring

Long Term Ecological Research sites on several atolls in the Marshall Islands to monitor for various climate change impacts including saltwater intrusion, coastal erosion/accretion, near-shore shifts in marine sedimentation rates and ecological communities, as well as establish long-term underwater transects for routine video monitoring of biological and ecological shifts in coral reef and marine ecosystems at depths up to 15 meters below sea-level, on comparative atolls.

Living Islands is committed to making all scientific data collected publicly available following review.
