Actions and Detail Panel
Global warming and recurrent mass coral bleaching
Thu. 6 April 2017, 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm AEST
Join us for a seminar by Prof Terry Hughes
Professor Terry Hughes is the Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and ARC Laureate Fellow at James Cook University, Townsville. In December 2016 he was recognized by Nature magazine as one of the Ten people who mattered this year.
In this seminar, Prof Hughes will discuss how recent record temperatures have triggered a pan-tropical episode of coral bleaching, the third largest event on a global scale since mass bleaching was first documented in 1980s. Unprecedented bleaching on the Great Barrier Reef in 1998, 2002 and now 2016, calls for immediate global action to curb future warming, if we are to secure a future for our coral reefs.
