The South Florida Caribbean Network shares methods and data in several formats including protocols, monitoring reports, and resource briefs. The major document types are defined below. In addition, there are also journal articles and presentations that provide additional scientific information about network resources.
Protocols - These share the methods and procedures used for monitoring, data management, and reporting. They are a good resources to use to explain the details of why and how we are monitoring a particular subject. They are typically produced once and then modified on a 4-5 year cycle.
Monitoring Report - These report the results of our monitoring efforts. They include graphs and tables and a summary of significant findings. They are typically produced annually, but some projects have a customized schedule.
Resource Brief - These one page documents are meant to quickly share the most important aspects of monitoring and the latest results. They are typically produced on an annual basis. This is a great starting point to get a feel for each of our monitoring projects.
