Abstract

The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) of Australia is the largest size of coral reef system on the planet stretching over 2300 kilometers. Coral reefs are experiencing a range of stresses including climate change, which has resulted in episodes of coral bleaching and ocean acidification where increased levels of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels are reducing the calcification mechanism of corals. In this article, we present a successful application of big data analytics with Internet of Things (IoT)/wireless sensor networks (WSNs) technology to monitor complex marine environments of the GBR. The paper presents a two-tiered IoT/WSN network architecture used to monitor the GBR and the rol..
