Henry Bartelet explored the socio-economic resilience of dive tourism on the Great Barrier Reef and other Pacific communities that depend economically on coral reefs. He identified complex and dynamic relationships between adaptive capacity, adaptive responses, and adaption outcomes. His thesis extends and refines existing and emerging climate change adaptation theories.
