Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The project has three goals: Quantify rates of calcification; compare rates with those established for health reefs; and establish a baseline against which future recovery or continued decline can be judged. This will be done using triangular array of ADCPs and Aandraa optode oxygen sensors.
