The situation

Coral reefs and the people that depend on them are facing a multitude of global, regional and local problems including climate change, overfishing and dredging.  Modelling is an important management technology that allows decision makers and reef users to see the dynamics of the whole reef system – including ecological, biophysical and socio-economic aspects. read more

Our research

Our research aims to develop modelling resources to enable reef managers to develop scenarios for their own areas, to better understand the links between local, regional and global processes and to access realistic scientific and economic data over the Internet. read more
