Digital Moorea is a collaborative vision of a coral reef ecosystem instrumented with real-time sensors connected to high-performance backend resources and sophisticated client applications. It will be a living laboratory for long-term studies of marine ecology and a testbed for evolving technologies for environmental and biological sensing, communications, and analysis. A diverse team of ecologists, computer scientists, and engineers from the Marine Science Institute at the University of
