Go inside SeaSim, the incredible facility that might help save the Great Barrier Reef.
Amid increasing concern over the ability of the reef to withstand another year of climate-induced coral bleaching, the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) has built a facility that is able to replicate actual reef conditions in a variety of experimental settings.
Known as the National Sea Simulator, researchers are able to mimic actual reef conditions with unparalleled levels of accuracy to better understand current conditions, as well as predict likely future changes effecting Northern Australia’s marine ecosystems.
