Projects

The contribution of human/marine herbivore interactions to reef degradation (2017 - 2019)$513,000
Description
The Project aims to define how interactions between human society and herbivores influence marine ecosystemstructure and function by (i) analysing geographic patterns emerging from recent systematic sampling of reefcommunities worldwide, and (ii) performing a critical suite of standardised field assays of fish, macro-invertebrateand meso-grazer herbivory to identify the role played by herbivores in facilitating the collapse and recovery of reefecosystems. The Project provides an unprecedented examination of the match between a critical ecosystemfunction and community structure across local to global scales, including the identification of non-linearities andinteractions involving human impacts on this process.

Identifying historical marine heatwaves off eastern Tasmania (2016)$14,250
Description
This project will identify and characterize marine heatwaves from the historic record along the east coast of Tasmania. The historic record will be derived from daily three-dimensional ocean temperatures from the ETAS coastal ocean model. ETAS covers the eastern continental shelf of Tasmania and has a spatial resolution of approximately 2 km spanning the 1993-2015 period. The ETAS model was forced by historic ocean and atmosphere reanalyses and has been extensively validated against existing observations in the region (Oliver and Holbrook, in prep.). It therefore represents our best estimate of the ocean state off eastern Tasmania. This data provides an unprecedented high-resolution record of the marine climate variations off eastern Tasmania.
