The Reefs & Wrecks of Micronesia
Where: Kosrae and Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia
When: October-November 2012
Why: The reefs of Kosrae are unique in the world. They are not only healthy, they are also growing! We want to aid the scientists in understanding this phenomenon with the aid of 3D computer models.
The wrecks of Truk Lagoon represent the sole source of revenue for the island of Chuuk. There is also some risk of a large oil spill from the wrecks as they deteriorate. At the invitation of the Governor and first lady an AIR team will be the first to create 3D models of a select group of wrecks.
