Google offers virtual Great Barrier Reef tour

GOOGLE Street View has gone off road and underwater mapping parts of the Great Barrier Reef.

From today you can dive parts of the World Heritage-listed marine park from your desk at work thanks to a team of scientists who have created a specially designed underwater camera capable of capturing 360-degree images of the Reef.

The project to map the reef is part of the Catlin Seaview Survey, launched at Monterey, California today.

Resort boosts solar power to protect Reef

Climate leader Peter Gash set new benchmarks for sustainable tourism in the Great Barrier Reef when he harnessed solar power to reduce his resort's diesel consumption by 70 per cent.

The hybrid solar power system we installed in 2008 has a 20kW capacity and produces around 120kW hours of renewable energy per day. Mr Gash said.

SOLAR ECLIPSE

A Total Eclipse of the Sun will occur over Northern Australia on the 14th November 2012. An eclipse of the Sun occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. The Sun is much larger than the moon but it is also much further away, such that the two bodies appear to be about the same size in the sky. During a total solar eclipse, the moon moves in front of the Sun and completely covers it. This casts a shadow on the Earth's surface. As the moon orbits the Earth and the Earth rotates, the shadow moves across the Earth's surface in a narrow path generally from west to east.
