Making ocean change visible online

Researchers at UQ and in South-East Asia – Indonesia, East Timor, and the Philippines – have collaborated on the XL Catlin Seaview Survey – a global science and communication project that is recording and analysing data from the world’s coral reefs. For the first time, coral reefs are now recorded by the XL Catlin Global Reef Record providing free, comprehensive, baseline data to scientists (and general public). The data is used to study and monitor the current health of these fragile ecosystems, and changes over time. XL Catlin are the founding partner and title sponsor; UQ is one of four founding partners alongside Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation (QCIF) and Underwater Earth.
