Professor Zoran Ristovski's collaborative voyage

Professor Ristovski, chef scientist on a voyage to examining the air above the Great Barrier Reef. He is leading a world-first study by an international collaboration of climate scientists from 13 institutions that have come together on the voyage to confirm that coral creates rain. For years, researchers have documented the increasing impact of climate change on the Great Barrier Reef, but very little is known about the reef’s effect on the climate, particularly rainfall. This team is here to investigate whether a damaged or dying reef could have repercussion for weather patterns in north Queensland.
