Title:Algal species and other data collected using photographs in the South Pacific Ocean from 02 January 1992 to 31 December 1992 (NODC Accession 9900054)
Abstract:Data from a 1992 survey of the American Samoa coral reef ecosystem was received from Dr. Barry Smith of the University of Guam. The digital files replace a paper report submitted to NODC in Fall 1998. This study was part of the American Samoa Coastal Resources Inventory (ASCRI), partly funded by Sea Grant. His component of the study focuses on a systematic inventory of conspicuous marine macro-invertebrates observations.

Supplementary information:Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database
maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The
design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content
Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information
accurately represents all available information from the legacy database
at the time that this description was created. However, proper
attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or
collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact
mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this
uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the
Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.

To develop more accurate metadata, the NODC reviews metadata for all
accessions on an ongoing basis.
