Reconstruction of reef island formation in the Maldives suggests the possibility that not all islands will shrink as climate change progresses.
Grazing rings around reefs have the potential to be used as a tool for monitoring reef health, but first, scientists have to figure out what factors govern halo size differences.
Quantifying the impacts of dredging through satellite remote sensing could serve as a valuable resource in future geopolitical disputes over contested waters.
Players dive off a research boat, identify and classify coral reefs using satellite and drone images, and bring marine life back to reefs. In doing so, they help scientists teach a machine to learn.
Warming events prompt scientists to look at ecological, genetic, and engineering interventions.
