Reef React is a software-based model that helps to predict futures of coral reef ecosystems under various climate and human use scenarios to help guide policy and management interventions to reduce negative impacts.
The tool enables users to predict futures of coral reef ecosystems under various climate and management scenarios (e.g. what if we improve water quality but climate change continues at current rates?).
It is accessed through an easy-to-use web-based interface.
The tool enables modeling of the impacts on coral reef ecosystems of proposed interventions for managing threats to coral reefs, before making a management intervention.
The training introduces the threats facing coral reefs, including pollution, climate change, cyclones, crown-of-thorns starfish and overfishing, and options for management of these threats.
Duration: 1/2 day
