Other Infrastructure Support

Throughout the joint venture, additional infrastructure support has been provided to augment existing facilities to make them more effective and facilitate AIMS@JCU research. For example, around $40,000 was provided to upgrade the external air conditioning unit controlling a Tem-perature Controlled Room at the Orpheus Island Research Station. This upgrade established the capacity of that facil┬Čity to conduct experimental work with coral larvae, and facilitated international research collaborations for AIMS@JCU students.
