Monitoring


Aim
To obtain comprehensive information regarding the current status and trend of coastal ecosystem

Objectives    

  • To obtain data of coral reef benthic covers and substrates
  • To obtain data of fish community structures
  • To obtain data of megabenthic communities
  • To obtain data of seagrass cover and epifite communities
  • To obtain data of mangrove covers and density    

Since 2015, RCO has had 37 active locations, covering about 14.069.808,24 Ha (approximately 4% of Indonesia waters) (table 1). In this case, we divide the locations into odd and even years or monitoring in the same locations every two years. During field observation, RCO involves scientists or certified personals from some universities, local authorities and NGO’s. There are manual guidelines for each component of monitoring which have been national references and adopted by some universities and local agencies for monitoring.
