Our Work in the Indian Ocean began in 2005. Working in the Southern Seychelles to study the coral reefs there, we shared daily live science reports from our research mission via a near-real-time reporting process.
We were back in the Indian Ocean again in 2005, this time with the job of conducting reef surveys to see how the corals had fared in the devastating Tsunami that swept across the Ocean in late 2004.
We expect to return to the Indian Ocean in 2015, to once again survey the reefs of the Seychelles. This will give us a chance to see how they have changed in the decade since we last surveyed them. We also hope to conduct additional research there that year.
