Hello Coral List,

The Coral Reef Alliance and the Allen Coral Atlas are hosting a training

surveys to assess coral bleaching worldwide. This information will help
ground-truth the satellite-based bleaching algorithm developed by the Allen
Coral Atlas that can detect potential coral bleaching at ~10m2 resolution.

The training will feature the following survey methods and data platforms:

a. Belt Transect (ReefCheck) and Global Reef Tracker

b. Rapid bleaching protocol (Wildlife Conservation Society) and MERMAID

c. Georeferenced photo-quadrats (The University of Queensland) and ReefCloud

Please feel free to share with students or anyone who may be interested in
monitoring coral bleaching.
