Coral Reef 3D Mapping Marathon! Thailand Expedition

This is it, folks. Our last chance on this expedition to the Gulf of Thailand to collect the imagery needed to reconstruct a MASSIVE 3D model of our study site and to use it for….SCIENCE! Specifically, by creating a 3D map of this massive coral reef, we can extract data that describe the shape of

3D modeling an entire coral reef takes teamwork (!)

Generating the largest published 3D model of a coral reef takes a team effort (and some serious synchronized swimming!). Special Thanks to our brothers and sisters at COREsea for the EPIC drone footage AND the indispensable assistance with this field work! If you’re looking for an internship that will get you in the water and

How we study social lives of coral reef fish in Thailand

12 GoPros can reconstruct movements of schools of reef fish (in 3D)?!

Some shots of Heather and I constructing ‘Mobile Fear Frame 2.0’. Our hope is that this beast will help achieve unprecedented insights about how coral reef fish behave and function (ecologically speaking) in schools of different size and species composition.

Why study social lives of coral reef fish?

Here’s a brief explanation for WHY we’re out here, on the far side of the world, having adventures in the name of science. Hint: there’s a lot more to why my marine biologist is awesome (and essential) than having fun in the ocean :). To support my campaign, to share the exhilarating process and invaluable

3D modeling ENTIRE coral reefs: mind-blowing technology

Ever thought: since we need to know so much about coral reefs to protect them (and the economies they support), why not create massive 3D reconstructions of entire coral reefs, and use this for science and long-term monitoring? ME TOO! This technology exists (lucky for all of us!), and we’re using it. Now. To support
