Scoping Out Corals and Climate Change

WHOI scientist Pat Lohmann removes a core drilled from a living coral during a recent field expedition to Palau, a remote coral reef archipelago in the far western Pacific. The core can be thought of as a biopsy that reveals how the coral is reacting to climate changes, in particular, ocean warming and acidification. Palau is a coral reef system currently studied by Anne Cohen's lab. (Photo by Anne Cohen, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
