Allen Coral Atlas Monitoring System

The Allen Coral Atlas Monitoring System is the world’s first, real-time global coral reef bleaching monitoring system. This new technology detects the variations in reef brightness using high-resolution satellite imagery and an advanced algorithm that indicates whether the reefs are being stressed because of marine heatwaves. It will enable accurate monitoring of location and extent of coral bleaching at the global scale so as to ensure better policy response.
