Measuring Seawater Temperatures with Global Climate Change

Image: Measuring Seawater Temperatures with Global Climate Change

Detailed Description

Researchers are experimentally determining the mechanisms corals will use to acclimatize to warmer seawater temperatures with global climate change. To determine the biochemical changes in corals, Dan did reciprocal transplant experiments between the forereef slope (benign environment, always around 28 degrees C) and the reef flat pools (stressful environment, with daily fluctuations of over 6 degrees C, e.g., 28 to 34.5). Pictured is an experimental array of 240 transplanted coral replicates to provide samples for biochemical analysis in a time series.
