Coral Reef Timelapse Video

Monday, June 29, 2015 by James Benson

The South Pacific is an area of beauty and wonder both on land and sea. Researchers there, much like those working in the Gulf of Maine, are working hard to understand ocean ecosystems and the communities of fish, invertebrates, and plants that are part of them. This timelapse video is a year’s worth of marine research adventure culminating to 95,000 pictures of tropical islands and underwater reef critters all in about 7 minutes.

 This was filmed and created by Jacob Eurich, a friend doing his PhD on “Processes underlying niche partitioning and ecological versatility in a guild of coral reef damselfishes”
