Coral Sea’s deep-water reef secrets revealed as pandemic sees research ship redeployed.

Coral Sea’s deep-water reef secrets revealed as pandemic sees research ship redeployed. Check out this nice coverage by the ABC of our recently completed Schmidt Ocean Institute (SOI) voyage investigating the reefs out in the Coral Sea. The Schmidt Ocean Institute works to advance the frontiers of global marine research by providing state of the art operational, technological, and informational support to the pioneering ocean science and technology development projects at sea. Scientists are able to bid for ship (RV Falkor) and ROV (SuBastian) time through a competitive proposal process and the GRG, with colleagues from around Australia, is involved in several cruises in the region in 2020.
