The Caribbean Centre offers access to scientists and other stakeholders in expertise on a variety of areas. Such as 3D modelling and visualisations for mapping coral reef constructions. The Centre also offers innovative solutions for protection and restoration of Caribbean coasts and marine underwater nature.


3D reconstructions Multi-scale high resolution modelling of complex coral reef ecosystems
Analytical methods With new technologies we strive to help shed light into the marine DOM black box
Long-term coral reef series Since 1973 we study the changes in the benthic coral reef community
Climate change & Threats The effects of sea leve rise and sea surface temperature on Caribbean biodiversity
Marine viral ecology The interaction of marine viruses and their hosts in relation to their environment
