Global Reef Record

QCIF is proud to support the Global Reef Record, a research tool aimed at collating and communicating the coral reef science of the Catlin Seaview Survey and combining that information with data from other leading sources of ocean research. This free database will provide scientists across various disciplines of marine studies with a tool for analyzing the current state of the reef ecosystems on a local, regional and global scale and monitoring changes that occur over time.

It has been designed in partnership with scientists from the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland with additional data and analysis from World Resources Institute, SCRIPPS and NOAA.

Get onto QRIScloud!

QCIF operates the Queensland node of both the Research Data Storage Infrastructure (RDSI) project (Data Collections) and the national research cloud provided by the National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources (NeCTAR) (Virtual Machines) project. The Queensland node is called QRIScloud, and its main data centre is currently located at The University of Queensland’s St Lucia campus.

QRIScloud is an integral part of new, national research infrastructure, leveraging data collections stored in the local and national RDSI nodes, and integrating with access to Queensland-based HPC facilities and specialised cloud data services. Find out more about QCIF’s services and infrastructure.

RDSI and NeCTAR are Australian Government projects conducted as part of the Super Science initiative and financed by the Education Investment Fund.
