Coral Cover Time Series on Permanent Phototransects
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This spreadsheet shows coral cover measured on 4 permanent 10m long transects at Site A and described in detail in Brown (2011). The photo-transects have been photographed at least annually since 1983 -2018 and on some occasions 2-3 times a year. The transects are named 9, 11, 14 and 15 and represent transects (parallel to the shore) which are 90, 110, 140 and 150m respectively from the shoreline
