In the Field

The CORAL field campaigns are now complete. Please visit this website’s Field Campaigns page for links to individual campaigns (the Operational Readiness Test in Hawaii, the Main Hawaiian Islands, the Great Barrier Reef, and Palau/Marianas).

The field and airborne teams have returned to their respective home institutions and the CORAL project is now moving into the data processing and analysis phase, which will extend into 2018. CORAL datasets and data products are publicly available. For more information, please visit or

Last year, in preparation for the first field campaign in Australia, part of the benthic field validation team honed its skills on the reefs of Bermuda. Take a peek at the video and photos below to get insight into the team’s activities, as well as an underwater tour of Bermuda’s reefs at North Rock.


A closer look at “practice locations” in Bermuda: Sea Venture Shoals and North Rock.
