What is a Team Scientist?
Reef Check FAQ
A Reef Check Team Scientist should:
- Be a marine biologist or highly experienced natural historian
- Be able to check over the data collected by the surveyors and be confident that the results are accurate
A team can share a scientist with another team if there is one nearby and once the team is established, the scientist doesn't necessarily have to be present during all surveys but should still review the data collected.
