The transect selected is off the coast of a small island named Baradal. The transect started at the island and proceeded east toward the Atlantic.
The plan was to pick a good representative area of the
reef and then do stations on the sea floor at fifty meter intervals. At
each interval a one by one metre grid was laid down, samples were to be
taken and the general surroundings recorded. Unfortunately due to time
constraints and rough water the grid could not be used for all of the zones.
Luckly the areas that were not covered by the grid have not been left out.
These areas are still covered thanks to some underwater video footage.
Various frames of the video footage have been digitalized and are provided.
