Research on our #corals is helping us find new ways to help our reefs after the hottest year on record and according to The Gaia Hypothesis it may be possible that corals hold the answer to solving global warming. Corals are packed full of the chemical dimethyl sulphide, or DMS. When released into the atmosphere, DMS helps clouds to form, which could have a large impact on the local climate. Aerosolized DMS could potentially be used to help regulate the earths temperature. More research is needed, but just another great reason why we need to protect our coral reefs now.

ARC Reef researchers have located and documented nearly 250 colonies of Acropora palmata. Their health will be monitored over time to get a better look at what conditions may be affecting the species. https://ARCreef.com

During our research expedition in the #bahamas, this curious dolphin came over to our boats to see what all the commotion was. ARC Reef (Atlantic Reef Conservation) is working hard to find solutions to our declining reef systems, as well as new and innovative ways at building large scale privatized artificial reefs. https://ARCreef.com

Here, Atlantic Reef Conservation (ARC Reef) is coming back down the Miami River after obtaining water samples upriver. What happens 100s of miles away affects our ‪#‎coral‬ ‪#‎reefs‬ here in Miami and the keys. https://ARCreef.com

This school of fish is a common aggregation comprised mainly of Ocean Surgeonfish (Acanthurus tractus) with several Blue Tangs (Acanthurus coeruleus), Doctorfish (Acanthurus chirurgus), & a few Stoplight Parrot Fish (Sparisoma viride)
Did you know that Surgeon Fish were named for the blade found near the base of their tail. It is nearly as sharp as a "Surgeons" scalpel.

ARC Reef is a state and federally licensed aquaculture facility specializing in sustainably produced Aquarium Live Rock. Our goal is to transition aquarium hobbyists to all aquaculture products to ensure that pristine reefs like this one are around for future generations to also enjoy.

Check out a microscopic view of the life giving zooxanthellae algae that gives #coral  it's color and life. Without which would result in #coralbleaching   #arcreef  https://ARCreef.com 400x magnification, darkfield compound microscope

Endangered #elkhorn #coral #acroporapalmata in pristine condition in #abaco. So far #arcreef researchers have not seen any signs of #coralbleaching while surveying the reefs here. Finding out why some reefs are devastated while others are untouched is a key question that could hold the answer to saving this species. https://ARCreef.com
