Tidal Energy as Tool to Restore Dead Coral Reefs















This strikes me as a **very compelling** breakthrough with regard to coral reef restoration.
.
Dr. Thomas J. Goreau and his team received an award in the IDEAS Competition at MIT, Cambridge, MA for their tidal energy device which is used to re-establish dead coral reefs. The coral communities grow very quickly and can survive at higher water temperatures.

See the fascinating 3 min 40 sec video clip in which Professor Goreau eleoquently explains and illustrates the results of his research:
