Satellites Show Coral Bleaching On Great Barrier Reef
The European Space Agency (ESA) has produced images showing the bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef.
The Great Barrier Reef lost nearly 30% of its corals in 2016 alone – due to bleaching. Satellite data is leading the way in monitoring corals with the Commonwealth countries now offering free satellite data amongst member states and the US NOAA already delivering a global coral bleaching alert system
This imagery was taken by the SENTINEL-2 satellite – shown below
