Alpine Aeolian Module
Rain Forest Module
The Marine module contains five downloadable units about the area that surrounds Haleakala, from the shallow waters to the deeper waters offshore.
This ecosystem is characterized by regular innundation by salt water. Marine habitats include coral reefs of various types, sandy bottoms, areas where the reef drops steeply to great depths, and caves, caverns, and lava tubes. In traditional Hawaiian society, the ocean and marine life were as familiar as landforms and terrestrial life.
