Investigating the potential for sea spray aerosol to mitigate coral bleaching

Mass coral bleaching events over the past decade have heightened the need for research into techniques to enhance survival of the Great Barrier Reef.Applying sea spray aerosol directly over coral reefs during periods of increased bleaching stress could mitigate bleaching by both locally reducing sea surface temperatures and by reducing incoming incident solar radiation. These effects are referred to as solar radiation management and can be broken up into the direct scattering of incoming solar radiation and via the interaction …

Developing optimal management approaches to sustain the Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is under significant threat from climate change.There are many options for management approaches to help sustain the reef, and many more are being developed. However, optimally planning these management actions is a difficult mathematical problem as they need to deploy over a large scale. This results in long timeframes for developing and executing these actions.This project will involve adapting the Modern Portfolio Theory to develop optimal management approaches to sustain the Great Barrier Reef.Modern Portfolio Theory …
