Artificial intervention not enough to save coral reefs

Researchers at the University of Bristol created a model to test the benefits of cooling ocean temperatures for coral reefs.

Their study found that geoengineering technologies to control ocean temperatures could slow the decline of coral reefs but was not a sustainable long-term measure.

They state that this technology would not reduce ocean acidification, meaning a decrease in the atmosphere’s carbon dioxide is essential in stalling reef decline.
