18 month time lapse of Acropora growth at Davies Reef

By Shane Graber - Posted Jan 28, 2014 09:00 AM
It's been a little over two years since the Australian Institute of Marine Science installed an underwater camera to photograph the activity of the marine life over a small section of Davies Reef (GBR). Someone decided to make a 18-month time lapse from this reefcam animating the growth of the table and staghorn Acorpora.

The camera, which began operation in July 2011, appears to have been taken offline in August of 2013.  The thousands of images it captured definitely made for one neat time-lapse.
