EAST FLOWER GARDEN BANK MONITORING IMAGES

Long-term monitoring efforts at the sanctuary include the use of repetitive photo stations. Pins mark locations on the reef where researchers return each year to take photos. By comparing photos from year to year they can evaluate the changes taking place on the reef.

Following are photos from 1989 to present for one of the repetitive photo stations at East Flower Garden Bank. These photos may be used as part of the Reef Monitoring Lesson available for the classroom.
