AGEDI presents at Coral Reefs of Arabia Conference

Abu Dhabi, UAE – The Arabian region contains some of the most unique but understudied coral reef ecosystems on earth, including those in the Arabian Gulf, the Arabian Sea, and the Red Sea.  The Coral Reefs of Arabia Conference, held at NYU Abu Dhabi from 15 to 17 February, brought leading scientists and marine managers studying these reefs together to exchange recent research findings, and to enhance collaboration to improve understanding and conservation of these important ecosystems. AGEDI’s work in Arabian Gulf Climatic Ocean Modelling was showcased at the event via a poster presentation, illustrating how climate change is expected to unfold in the oceans in the Arabian Gulf. Oceans Modelling is one sub-project of AGEDI’s Climate Change Programme – the most comprehensive study of the issue for the region.
