catlinGoogle street view is now underwater with Oceans-Street View. It’s now possible to view the current health of coral reefs of the world all in one click. The website, called Global Reef Record, is brought to us by Catlin Seaview Survey. The purpose is to allow reef health to be maintained and documented by scientists and used to track reefs progress. The Data maps allow you to view Australia, Atlantic, Southeast Asia, Indian Ocean, Middle East and the Pacific. The website also shows current bleaching alerts and sea temperatures, along with current thermal stress data. It is a fantastic tool to hopefully preserve our reefs and learn more as we go. MORE
