Beginning on Jan. 1, 2020, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is set to enact the Annex VI of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL Convention), which lowers the maximum sulfur content of marine fuel oil used in ocean-going vessels from 3.5% to 0.5%.

Just under the water lies one of the biggest mysteries of the Great Barrier Reef: blue holes. These underwater sinkholes give researchers a rare look at ocean life and how we can protect it. Until a few years ago, only two blue holes were documented in the entirety of the Great Barrier Reef they are coarse to find and even harder to get to.

With the help of Google Maps, marine biologist Johnny Gaskell and a team of researchers are finding previously unknown blue holes. In 2017, after witnessing Cyclone Debbie destroy many of the reefs in its path, he set out to find more blue holes. Home to hundreds of species of coral and serving as a protective waters for larger marine life, these formations give scientists a view of history buried in undisturbed sediment layers and clues about how to better protect coral reefs.

Using Google Maps satellite view, Johnny followed the cyclones path to pinpoint areas along the reef that might have been spared from damage. Thats when he spotted perfect circles along the reef, indicating a potential blue hole. The formation he identified was south of the Whitsundays in the Coarse Line Reefs, a difficult-to-reach area of the Great Barrier Reef thats dangerous to navigate. Despite this, Johnny and a team of divers headed out into the unknown, unsure of what if anything awaited them.

Theres still so many spots out in the Great Barrier Reef that are unexplored. Johnny Gaskell

With the satellite view of Google Maps on their phones, they navigated their boats through restricted channels in unsurveyed waters until the blue dot on their map was directly over the blue hole. Johnny dove in and found healthy coral formations that have sat undisturbed, possibly for centuries. Along the edges were delicate birdsnest corals, vibrant giant clams and mammoth branching staghorn corals. In the stillness of the blue holes center, there were green sea turtles, giant trevally and sharks that all called the dark, cool water home.

With the help of Google Maps, a discovery that would have taken years of underwater exploration on the seafloor is now allowing researchers to expand our understanding of the worlds largest ecosystem. Today, Johnny is still working to build a snapshot of coral reef conditions. Working with Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef and the Great Reef Census project, they are using geotagged images to give everyone from scientists to students a better idea of whats going in depths of the water whether they dive in or not.

In 2021 the Great Reef Census is expanding to reach more reefs, collect more data, and broaden its research goals. To join the efforts, sign up as a Citizen or contribute directly via the projects fundraising page.
