Professor Emma Johnstone meets geoscientist Jody Webster, from the University of Sydney, to explore the history of the Great Barrier Reef. Using multi-beam sonar images to map the reef, Jody can identify patterns in its geological history and pinpoint various life cycles. According to material evidence, the reef has undergone many changes, deaths and renewals, but none have occurred as suddenly those in recent years.
