Bermuda's Brain Corals

The #coral reefs of #Bermuda are the most northern massive coral reefs in the Atlantic Ocean. They are unique because they are dominated by brain corals, which usually only occupy 5-10% of the coral cover composition in #Caribbean reefs. 

Take the 360° virtual dive through Horseshoe Bay and have a look for yourself - https://www.google.com/maps/views/u/2/b/108517873237526057594/view/streetview/oceans/horseshoe-bay-bermuda/2Qgb_CbIDQgAAAQo8BKy5w?gl=au&heading=346&pitch=72&fovy=75

Revealing Ocean Change: The Future

We've made underwater imagery available to over a billion monthly users of Google Street View. 

The 750,000 panoramic images we’ve taken in 26 countries allows us to track change underwater - a change occurring faster than the ocean has seen in millions of years. 

This #gif shows the before and after images of an area on the Great Barrier Reef devastated by a cyclone.

Virtual scuba dive with one of the largest corals in the world

At 41 metres in circumference and 7 metres in height, this huge Porites coral in the National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa may well be the largest coral on the planet. Local divers have nicknamed it "Big Momma" and it is 535 years old!

Take a virtual scuba dive here: https://www.google.com/maps/views/u/2/b/108517873237526057594/view/streetview/oceans/big-momma-american-samoa/tW9y0aUihEkAAAQo8A3lOg?gl=gb&heading=32&pitch=98&fovy=90

The hard science that comes from underwater panoramas

We use our underwater panoramas to create important scientific records of the world's coral reefs.

Tafeu Cove, American Samoa

American Samoa is a string of seven remote islands in the South Pacific, 2,500 miles south of Hawaii. There are extensive ‪#‎coral‬ reefs here, rich in marine life.

This virtual dive at Tafeu Cove, within the National Park of American Samoa, starts as a half-in / half-out and then dives underwater for a virtual tour of the reef: https://www.google.com/maps/views/u/0/view/streetview/oceans/tafeu-cove-american-samoa/cmtO1N168FUAAAQo8BSRvw?gl=us&heading=240&pitch=77&fovy=75

Story
Tagline
The XL Catlin Seaview Survey is a global science and communication project - recording and revealing our rapidly changing oceans.
Introduction

The world’s reefs are in a dramatic state of decline - we’ve lost over 40% of corals over the last 50 years due to pollution, destructive fishing and climate change. According to the scientific community the decline is set to continue, it will affect 500 million people globally who rely on coral reefs for food, tourism income and coastal protection.

In response to this issue, the XL Catlin Seaview Survey is creating a baseline record of the world’s coral reefs, in high-resolution 360-degree panoramic vision. It will enable change to be clearly monitored over time and will help scientists, policy makers and the public at large to see and understand the issues reefs are facing and work out what needs to be done to best protect coral reefs now and into the future.

More from the project can be seen at http://catlinseaviewsurvey.com/
