Overview

The impact of climate change has been acutely felt by coral reefs across the Indian Ocean.  Successive ‘bleaching’ events have been observed with greater frequency and duration – a potentially lethal combination.

This programme of work is monitoring how different reefs  respond to these warming and bleaching events over the short, medium and long-term.  By collaborating with scientists focused on other aspects of the marine environment, this work will also uncover the impact of a changing coral reef on other animal and plant populations.
