For Coral Reef Restoration to Work, Remote Sensing Technology is Key

Technologies that can sense qualities like temperature, ocean color, and the shape of the seafloor from afar have transformed global marine monitoring by providing quick access to ocean data, including information from remote locations. Remote sensing technology is essential for successful coral reef restoration, argues a new study, and that it will only become more […]

Can Coral Reefs Strangled by Algae Recover?

When a coral reef suffers from bad environmental conditions like warmer water, sometimes the coral can recover—but sometimes algae will grow over the ecosystem instead. Scientists in French Polynesia tested what makes a reef either rebound or convert to undersea algae fields after a disturbance.

Changing Oceans May Confuse Critically Endangered European Eels

European Eels are in trouble, and a warming, acidifying ocean might make survival even tougher for the critically endangered species. New research breaks down how a changing ocean could confuse these long-distance swimmers as they navigate to their migration destinations.
