Past, present and future of turbid reefs in the Coral Triangle

Project description

Predicting climate change impact on coral reefs

Coral reefs occupy 0.1 % of the world’s ocean area and support 25 % of all marine species on the planet. Climate change is threatening these natural wonders. The EU-funded 4D_REEF project will investigate areas that can support coral reefs in future climate change scenarios. It will develop analysis and monitoring tools to compare current and past conditions, spanning the Pliocene-Holocene geological epochs. The findings will increase our understanding of biotic response to environmental change and provide essential baselines for predicting the impact of ongoing global environmental change. By bringing together leading groups and experts from various research fields, 4D_REEF will also form a training environment for early-stage researchers.
