Reef React is a web-based tool which uses a Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) and assists users to predict alternate futures for coral reef ecosystems under various climate and human use scenarios to help guide policy and management interventions to reduce negative impacts. It comprises the free Netica software https://www.norsys.com/) and must be used in conjunction with the Reef React User Guide.

The model builds a network to capture different drivers influencing coral reef dynamics. It predicts the probability of coral reef cover in each percentage category and measures mean of coral reef cover in given years for different climate scenarios.

Reef React model is accessed through Netica, and following instructions in the User Guide. To download Netica click this link https://www.norsys.com/download.html
