Coral Reef Research

Coral Reef Research

Researchers at NSU’s Oceanographic Center, led by professor Bernhard Riegl, Ph.D., are modeling the effects of climate-mediated mass mortality on reef corals. Research centers on the mathematical modeling of coral dynamics based on maps of coral reefs and underwater observations of corals. As part of the NCRI (National Coral Reef Institute) Monitoring Network, the findings have important implications for the management of coral reefs.
