There are four objectives to this project:
i) Continue collecting small-scale epidemiology information from previously established monitoring sites in the middle Florida Keys to better understand SCTLD dynamics;
ii) Conduct follow-up surveys at previously established intervention sites to assess longer-term effectiveness of this effort;
iii) Outplant coral colonies onto previously SCTLD-affected locations across the endemic zone and assess their survival;
iv) Conduct SCTLD surveys along the Intermediate Reef strata
