Coral expedition: sharing the science

The University of Queensland team discuss the SVII underwater camera and how this revolutionary technology allows the XL Catlin Seaview Survey to investigate the reef. Learn how the scientists use important techniques such as transects and baselines as part of their work.

The XL Catlin Seaview Survey also makes use of new technologies so that the public can go on virtual dives and other scientists can access the data collected to use in their own work and research.
