The research aim of THROUGHFLOW is to establish a greater understanding of key processes in the biotic response of coral reefs to long-term environmental changes resulting from closure of the Indonesian Throughflow during the Oligocene-Miocene transition (~25 Million years ago). This will establish important baseline data on which researchers can model the impact of predicted environmental change on present reef ecosystems.
We are currently seeking qualified candidates to be hired as Early Stage Researchers within the network.
