Mobile internet usage is projected to overtake desktop internet usage by 2014. Following from the NOAA Coral Program’s Communications, Education and Outreach Strategy, in which we identify members of the ‘conservation public’ as a key audience who seek out science news and information via the internet, we have launched a new mobile version of the Coral Reef Conservation Program website. Check out CoralReef.noaa.gov/m. You'll find news, feature stories, coral facts, and more delivered straight to your smartphone. The new Coral Program mobile website also includes a mobile-optimized version of the Glossary and Acronyms from the NOAA Coral Reef Information System (CoRIS).
With the mobile platform development expertise of the NOS Technical Information Services Branch and Coral Program partners in CoRIS, the team developed this mobile website over the course of FY12. The Coral Program mobile site is the fastest and easiest way to get coral information wherever you go. Here's what you'll find at CoralReef.noaa.gov/m: Coral Reef Facts - quickly browse through the coral facts featured on the Coral Program home page; News and Features - browse through the latest news from the world of coral research and conservation and read Coral Program feature stories; Surf through the collection of coral images on the NOS Flickr stream.
