We conducted a field survey in Ishigaki Island in Okinawa Prefecture. Activities included the regular maintenance of oceanographic sensors in Shiraho reef and terrestrial sensors in various watersheds around the island. Seagrass samples were also collected in Shiraho reef, as well as environmental parameter data relating to seagrass growth rate and living conditions.
Members: Dr. Watanabe, Sith, Takeuchi
