Jacksonville Lithoherms
The Jacksonville lithoherms area is a huge region of hardground outcroppings and deep-sea coral bioherms occurring from about 200 to 800 m depths over a latitude range of about 30° to 31° N. The dominant deep-sea coral is Lophelia pertusa, which colonizes the rocks as well as builds bioherms. Black corals (mostly Leiopathes sp.) are common on the rocky hardgrounds, reach large sizes, and can be hundreds to thousands of years old. Other cniderians observed in this area include Madrepora oculata, Enallopsammia profunda, Plumarella sp., Bathypathes sp., Stylaster spp., Keratoisis sp., cup corals, and numerous anemones. Sponge diversity is quite high.

St Lucie Bump
The habitat of interest at St. Lucie Bump consisted of low to high relief coral mounds comprised of 99% dead Lophelia pertusa matrix with occasional live tips.

Cape Canaveral North
Multiple dives, on August 7th and August 9th 2009, surveyed the ‘Cape Canaveral North' site using the Johnson Sea Link submersible.

Cape Canaveral Shallow
This site is composed of a southern part which contains three adjacent mounds, called Triceratops (Area III), separated from each other by about 500 m. Five JSL dives were made here in Aug 2009 and one Jason ROV dive was conducted here in Nov 2010. S. Brooke also conducted two JSL dives at this location in 2005. The three mounds are Lophelia pertusa bioherms surrounded by coral rubble and coarse sand substrata. The central mound is the largest, reaching a depth of just under 400 m, and the smallest mound is to the east. All three mounds exhibit rugged topography and are capped by extensive fields of living L. pertusa. Diversity of other corals (including Madrepora oculata and Enallopsammia profunda), sponges, and other sessile fauna is quite high on these mounds.

Cape Canaveral South
Multiple research cruises, beginning in 2005 and again in 2009, surveyed the ‘Cape Canaveral South' site using the Johnson Sea Link submersible. In 2010, a cruise surveyed the site using the Jason 2 ROV.

Pourtales Terrace
Lying along the southern edge of the Florida Peninsula, the Pourtalès Terrace forms a narrow, gently curved triangle that parallels the Florida Keys for 213 km, from southern Key Largo to just west of the Marquesas Keys between Key West and the Dry Tortugas. Geologically, it is continuous with the Miami Terrace to the north, but the connecting portion is buried under thick sediments. The Terrace covers 3,429 km² and reaches its greatest width, 32 km, south-southeast of Vaca Key, where the apex of the triangle actually lies closer to Cay Sal Bank in the Bahamas than to the Florida Keys.

St Augustine
The St. Augustine lithoherm was composed primarily of a dead Lophelia pertusa rubble matrix on a carbonate rock substrate. Additionally, this site is a carbonate substrate lithoherm with rock slabs and outcrops covered in consolidated and unconsolidated coral rubble.
