It is now possible, through the Global Reef Record website, developed by Catlin Seaview Survey, to obtain photographic documentation, to monitor the reef’s health and to view the coral reefs of the whole world with just one click!
These maps allow you to view coral reefs in Australia, the Atlantic, South East Asia, the Indian Ocean, the Middle East and the Pacific.
The website also shows whitening area warnings, sea temperatures, and thermal stress data as well.
It is a fantastic tool to preserve our barriers and to have more information on their development and changes.
The Catlin Global Reef Record is a research tool of the Catlin Seaview Survey aimed at documenting and gathering data on the coral reefs that, together with other information from other important research sources, creates an enormous free database for scientists of different disciplines from all over the world.
It was developed in collaboration with the scientists of the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland, with data and additional analysis from the World Resources Institute, SCRIPPS and NOAA.
