Revision of About THROUGHFLOW from Fri, 2010-05-28 04:38

We are currently preparing the NTA 1-3

Cenozoic evolution of the Indonesian Throughflow and the origins of Indo-Pacific marine biodiversity: Mapping the biotic response to environmental change.

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.
