But the next wave will be bigger, more intense and, for some, the best.
The event, which was scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. local time Saturday, has been postponed until Tuesday.
The bicentenary is not just about celebrating the coral and other marine life that once covered much of the globe.
It is also a celebration of what the world has to offer, including a glimpse at a world that was once the last of the Earth’s islands.
This year, scientists are racing to discover the answers to questions about the ocean’s health, the planet’s climate and its future.
But there are still some big unanswered questions.
For the first time, the bicameral International Oceanographic Commission will host an annual conference on the biblically-inspired coral reef, which includes experts from more than 100 countries.
It will include a panel discussion with speakers from a range of fields, including oceanographers, geochemists and ecologists, as well as scientists who study coral reefs.
More:What we know about coral reefsThe conference will feature experts from across the globe who will speak on topics ranging from the health of coral reefs to the role of pollution in the global ocean.
The bicentenaries are scheduled to run from March 6-12.
The first will focus on how coral reefs work and how the environment is affecting their health and function.
There will be panels on the effects of pollution on the environment and how reefs can help protect marine life and help protect the coral from disease and other threats.
“There are some important questions that have not been addressed,” said Jeff Smith, director of the U.S. Geological Survey’s Coral Reef and Marine Living Center.
“These are questions that really have to be answered.”
The first bicentennials were held in 1970, when the Great Depression and World War II created an economic boom that made the world’s coral reefs a rich source of tourism.
But they were mostly untouched.
The Great Barrier reef is the world headquarters for marine biology, the largest marine science enterprise.
Its coral reefs, which are also home to a number of other species, include many species that have yet to be discovered.
Scientists believe that the corals, which make up half of the reef, were not designed to survive the ravages of the ocean.
But many have been impacted by pollution and by humans.
Scientists are hoping that with this year’s bicentens, they can get a better idea of how the reef is changing.
Scientists say the world is at risk of having a coral reef that is already dying from pollution and other pressures.
The corals are being ravaged by human activities, including plastic pollution, invasive species and climate change.
Some scientists are now working to figure out how much of that pollution is harmful and how much is not.
The Bicentennial of the Coral Reef was scheduled as the first day of the conference, but the postponement was caused by a typhoon that hit the area, said Mary Hoey, the event’s president.
The conference is being hosted by the Institute of the Americas and the World Coral and Ecosystems Fund.
Smith is the president of the IOM and the foundation’s director of science and society.
He also has worked at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Marine Mammal Foundation.
The IOM is a nonprofit, public policy organization that focuses on marine and coastal issues, including climate change and the oceans.
The organization is also affiliated with the National Marine Fisheries Service, the nation’s premier oceanographic agency.
