Geodynamcs field trippers with huge chunk of fossil coral in Bahamas

On the Road in Barbados

WHOI research assistant Mary Lardie holds an information card while geochronologist William Thompson takes a photo of a large fossil coral during the 2009 Geodynamics Field Trip to Barbados. Each year, students and staff in the Geodynamics program travel to a place where geologic features visible on the surface, such as this ancient coral, hold the key to understanding ocean processes and events. Thompson is using fossil corals to study past changes in sea level and the prospects for higher sea levels in the future as a result of global climate change.
