Coral response to acidification

Eyes on Coral

MIT-WHOI Joint Program student Elizabeth Drenkard examines skeletons grown by 3-week old corals in a culture experiment conducted at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences. Drenkard is working with WHOI scientists Anne Cohen and Daniel McCorkle to investigate the importance of nutrition in the coral's response to ocean acidification. Her paper reporting the results of this study was recently published in the journal Coral Reefs. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
