Due to difficulties in finding a sponsor for coordination activities, we
will be delaying the onset of the CARRUS Alliance. Thus, the CARRUS Workshop
on Sunday July 6, just prior to the ICRS, has been cancelled. 


The CARRUS Alliance (Comparative Analysis of Reef Resilience Under Stress)
will ultimately be the realization of several workshops and international
agreements over a 35 year period. Its aim will be to coordinate specific
studies among long-term interdisciplinary reef research programs currently
ongoing around the world so as to facilitate understanding coral reef
science and management via the comparative approach. 


Efforts will continue to find a sponsor.
