Measurements of the length and width of Acropora coral branches in Java, Indonesia, show that Biorock corals grew 20.7488 times faster in length and 4.126 times faster in thickness than control corals (Nugroho, Zuhry, Kusnandar, Simanjuntak, Alamsyah, & Karissa, 2023). Since the volume of the branch is Pi times the square of the diameter times the length, the coral volume increase under Biorock stimulation is 353.225 times greater than the uncharged control coral.
