This page serves as a prototype for the CORAL PRISM data browser. It will be updated in the upcoming months with the completed set of mission data.


COral Reef Airborne Laboratory (CORAL) is one of NASA's Earth Venture Suborbital-2 (EVS-2) missions designed to provide an extensive, uniform survey of coral reef communities through the use of the Portable Remote Imaging Spectrometer (PRISM) instrument aboard the Tempus Applied Solutions Gulfstream-IV (G-IV) aircraft.

The CORAL mission combined a variety of in situ data, deployed under six sub-campaigns, to identify reef composition and study primary production near the Mariana Islands, Palau, portions of the Great Barrier Reef, and the Hawaiian Islands.

The in situ data collected under the CORAL mission are archived in NASA's SeaBASS in situ bio-optical data archive and are co-located to the PRISM instrument's flight lines for convenience in the table below. In situ data that is spatially coincident and within a 7-day temporal window of a PRISM flight line is group together into compressed bundles. Please note, a 7-day temporal window may NOT be suitable for all validation purposes, especially for AOP and IOP data, which are highly sensitive to temporal and environmental variations, whereas benthic cover measurements are likely to be more robust over this collocation window.

When using this data, please follow the requisite data access and citation policies for the CORAL mission, the PRISM data, and the in situ data archived in SeaBASS.
