About REEForm

REEForm is a Working Group of the International Association of Geomorphologists. The group undertakes research on the geomorphic responses of coral reefs and reef islands to past, present and future environmental and climatic change. A commitment exists within the group to undertake science directed at informing coastal management and adaptation strategies. This commitment is based on the recognition that our ability to meaningfully address issues of reef ecological change, island erosion and poverty alleviation requires significant advances in understanding both past reef and reef island histories, and contemporary ecological-geomorphological limkages that control present reef and reef island states.
