WHOI scientist Konrad Hughen, who studies tropical climate change recorded in coral skeletons, spotted this 15-cm (6-inch) "rosy finger coral" (Stylophora pistillata) at 2-3 meters depth while surveying the health of a Red Sea reef in 2007. Hughen and other WHOI researchers are studying aspects of Red Sea coral reef ecosystems as part of a new multidisciplinary research agreement with KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology) in Saudi Arabia.
