Ocean Acidification's Natural Laboratory

Research associate Kathryn A. Rose preserves coral samples at the University of Panama's NAOS laboratory during a expedition to the Gulf of Panama's Pearl Islands in June 2011. Rose's work is part of wide-ranging research into the effects of ocean acidification on coral reefs by WHOI scientist Anne Cohen and colleagues. The naturally low pH of seawater in the Gulf of Panama makes this a natural laboratory for ocean acidification research and is one of 10 reef systems across the Indo-Pacific currently studied by Cohen's lab.
