Shallow reefs off Singapore survive in the face of adversity

An analysis of the health of highly impacted coral reefs off Singapore during a 27-year-long period has shown they are more resilient to the impacts of human activity and warming than expected. A UNSW-led international team found that shallower reefs rebounded rapidly from a major bleaching episode in 1998, despite experiencing such high levels of sedimentation that underwater visibility was typically less than 2 meters.
