CORAL – COral Reef Airborne Laboratory / Earth Venture Suborbital – 2

Thursday, October 20, 2016

For five weeks, clouds and high winds have prevented the CORAL project from venturing into the Torres Strait and northeast Great Barrier Reef (GBR) regions.  However, on Wednesday, October 12, the clouds cleared to a remarkable degree, allowing the CORAL flight team to image one of three regions in and around the Torres Strait.  The skies continued to be reasonably clear over the following days, allowing the flight team to image the remaining two northeast GBR regions.
