Mission complete in Chagos

The team are in transit on their way home following a successful survey period in the remote Chagos Archipelago. Stay tuned to www.catlinseaviewsurvey.com for the final wrap up from the field team - in the meantime we'll continue to share some magical images from the field. Pictured here is a local banded angelfish hiding beneath a hard acropora coral.

A rendezvous with the Google Trekker in Chagos

Whilst our divers have been surveying the remote waters of the Chagos Archipelago, the Chagos Conservation Trust have been using the Google Trekker to survey the equally remote islands of the region.

A Coral Reef Time Capsule

The Catlin Seaview Survey team have just embarked on our latest survey - to record and reveal a unique #coral reef 'time capsule'.

The pristine reefs in the #Chagos Islands are like taking a glimpse back in time to what reefs may have looked like before the last 100 years of population growth and exploitation. We will be creating a baseline record, which can be used for comparison with degraded reefs worldwide.

Deep Reef Survey team at work in Chagos

The Deep Reef specialists work in the "Mesophotic zone", in waters deeper than 30m / 90feet. The SVII camera is used by the Shallow Reef team in waters around 10m / 30feet deep.

Because conditions on the deep reef are different (cooler water and less light) we find different corals here too. Pictured here are marine biologists who specialise in these mesophotic corals, they are collecting very small samples of corals which can be studied in the lab.

Ghost Crab in Chagos

Today our survey team connected with a Google Trekker team who are currently surveying the remote islands of the Chagos Archipelago. This Ghost Crab was spotted on Ile de la Passe (Salomon Island) and it stopped still just long enough for us to capture this image. Ghost Crabs move quickly and spend their time digging holes in the tidal zones looking for food.

The weather changes quickly this close to the equator

The team are currently surveying in the Chagos Archipelago, which is part of the British Indian Ocean Territory. February is officially considered the end of the rainy season and so the team have been prepared for quickly changing tropical weather. 

Pictured here is the SVII camera being deployed from our tender under heavy afternoon skies. The outlook is for more settled conditions for the reminder of the survey period - our divers are looking forward to seeing the reef sparkle under full sunshine soon!

A Remote Archipelago

We have arrived in the remote #Chagos Archipelago in the Indian #Ocean , some 500 nautical miles south of the Republic of the Maldives, which itself is already over 300 nautical miles out to sea south of India. The tropical reef systems here are some of the healthiest and cleanest anywhere on the planet so we are anticipating some great results for the survey.

Coral Triangle Summary

Our main focus in 2014 was to create a baseline record of the  #coral reef communities in the famously biodiverse Coral Triangle region:

5 expeditions across 4 countries;
221 km of coral reef imaged from 130 shallow reef transects;
>100,000 scientific images captured;
145 dives conducted with more than 300 hours underwater;
4 major Marine Protected Areas.

This #photosphere of Tubbataha in the #Philippines is just one of the many 360° images collected, in order to record and reveal the coral reefs in this region.

Story
Tagline
The 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 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/
