Title: CREON Coral Reef Environmental Observatory Network


1
CREONCoral Reef Environmental Observatory Network
Townsville 2006 Workshop
Workshop Organizers Stuart Kininmonth Sally
Holbrook
Coordinated networks for data collection
real time access
2
CREON Developing a Scalable Coral Reef
Sensor Network
  • Workshops with scientists working on lakes
    coral reefs
  • Identify science questions requiring a global
    network of sensor data
  • Identify core variables standards for sensor
    measurement
  • Develop plan for implementation
  • Exchange information between lake coral reef
    scientists

3
Previous CREON Workshops
San Diego Workshop September 2004
  • CREON Created
  • 12 Coral Reef Scientist Participants

San Diego Workshop March 2005
  • CREON Themes Goals Identified
  • 21 Coral Reef Scientist Participants

4
March 2005 Workshop
Overarching CREON Science Theme
Responses Recovery of Coral Reef
Ecosystems to Disturbances
  • Specific Science Foci
  • Coral Bleaching
  • Ocean Acidification
  • Coral Algal Phase Shifts
  • Outbreaks (e.g., disease, natural enemies)

5
March 2005 Workshop
Proposed Sensor - Measured Variables
Core (can implement now)
Desired (needs R D)
  • PAR - surface
  • UV - surface
  • Meteorological variables
  • Water temperature
  • Salinity
  • Water O2
  • Pressure
  • Currents
  • PAR at depth
  • UV at depth
  • CO2 , pH
  • PAM fluorometry
  • Turbidity
  • Nutrients (N, P)
  • Video

CREON Initial Locations
March 2005 Workshop
  • Davies Reef, Great Barrier Reef, Australia
    (Australian Institute of Marine Science, James
    Cook University)
  • Kenting Coral Reef ILTER Site, Taiwan (Taiwan
    Research Center for Biodiversity, Taiwan National
    Center for High Performance Computing)
  • Florida Keys, United States (US National
    Oceanographic Atmospheric Administration)
  • Moorea Coral Reef LTER Site, FP (US National
    Science Foundation)
  • Interested in future participation
  • World Bank Centers of Excellence Sites
    (MesoAmerica, East Africa, Philippines,
    Australia)

7
Plan for Implementation
March 2005 Workshop
  • Working groups (data standards, data
    management, software development, platform
    development)
  • Coordinated research efforts (middleware
    development, underwater wireless data
    transmission, power supply, etc.)
  • Annual Workshops
  • Goal Operational sensor network in 3 to 5 years

Moorea Coral Reef Long-Term Ecological Research
Site (MCR LTER)
PIs Russ Schmitt, Sally Holbrook, Pete
Edmunds, Bob Carpenter 16 Additional
Investigators
11
  • MCR LTER Objectives
  • Quantify long-term trends in ecosystem attributes
    drivers
  • Understand processes that
  • (i) modulate ecosystem function(ii) shape
    community structure diversity(iii) determine
    population abundance dynamics
  • Predict responses to climate forcing acute
    disturbances

12
MCR LTER Monitoring Program
Instrumented sites around island in lagoon and
reef slope
Classes of Measured Variables
  • Meteorological (deployed sensors)
  • Oceanographic (deployed sensors)
  • Biological

13
MCR LTER Sensors
Thermistor
CTD
ADP
Wave - Tide Pressure Sensor
14
MCR LTER Goals 1. Distributed Sensor Network
(Digital Moorea)
  • Wireless LAN (WETNet)
  • Near real-time data access
  • Real-time instrument query

2. Node in CREON
  • Initial MCR LTER sensors online July 2006?
