Bridge DATA: Coral Snapshots While it is possible to survey a coral reef using quadrats, scientists are now using cutting-edge technology to closely examine the entire reef; instead of extrapolating results from several study sites. Scientists at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science are taking video of reefs and then analyzing it via a computer program back in the lab. This method cuts down on the inherent error associated with the quadrat system and actually requires less time and money spent in the field.
