Sen2Coral: Hiva Oa, French Polynesia

French scientist Antoine Collin is testing and validating the capabilities of the Sentinel-2 satellite to monitor coral bleaching – a result of the current El Niño weather event underway.

He sent us this video message from the island of Hiva Oa, in French Polynesia:

Antoine is now in Fatu Huku island, which contains the most developed coral reefs in the Marquesas Islands, to check their health. He will stay there until 29 February.

Check back for new updates on his mission!
