Through a research agreement with King Abdullah
University of Science and Technology, WHOI scientists are studying coral reef
ecosystems, fisheries, and water circulation along Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea
coast. WHOI scientists – including MIT-WHOI Joint Program student Jessie
Kneeland, shown measuring a large coral – are assessing the health of extensive
coral reefs and identifying environmental factors affecting them.
