Coral in close-up

Master’s student Paul van Wiechen has manually crafted 384 coral replicas out of silicone plastic moulds. Production time: a painstaking 48 hours. He has planted all of them on the bottom of our large flume set up in the Waterlab. His goal: to understand exactly how waves transform in coral reefs. If corals are bleaching due to climate change, what will happen to our world’s coastlines if the natural systems protecting the shore disappear?
