There are currently two main themes within the Group: Research developing novel methods for monitoring coral colony growth using image analysis, computer modelling with a remote operated vehicle (ROV). This is being used to monitor the effects of climate change, global warming and other anthropogenic influences on coral reef ecosystems. Research in volcanology. Current research embraces two themes (a) investigating volcanic processes, in particular lava flows, to better understand the hazard and (b) consider ways of reducing vulnerability through research into the nature of communities living on the flanks of volcanoes.
