Discoveries using remote sensing technologies – like multibeam sonar – are amazing, but it is another thing to actually have a camera, a presence, in never-before-seen locations. Take a look back to learn from and experience some of the most memorable moments of the #VisioningCoralSea expedition, guided by the researchers themselves.
As ocean temperatures increase, a pressing global challenge in marine science is to better understand the distribution and characteristics of the critical habitats that support mesophotic and deep-water coral communities. Following the previous Visioning the Coral Sea Marine Park expedition, a similar team of scientists led by Drs. Brendan Brooke, Geoscience Australia, and Robin Beaman, James Cook … Continued
Kornei, K. (2020). A Plate Boundary Emerges between India and Australia. EOS, 101, doi: 10.1029/2020EO144177.
The ‘Visioning the Coral Sea’ expedition has provided an unprecedented look at the habitats and biology of the deep Coral Sea. This huge oceanic wilderness contains many large atolls, most of which are virtually unexplored. In fact, the only reef that has been explored in any detail, at least beyond a depth of ~150 m, … Continued
Dr. Dhugal Lindsay is an Australian working in Japan at the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) and several universities. His research focuses on mid-water ecology, particularly concentrating on gelatinous organisms that are too fragile to be sampled by conventional methods.
