MENLO PARK, Calif. — June is recognized as National Oceans Month in the United States. Join USGS Oceanographer Dr. Nancy Prouty to hear about scientific studies of deep-sea corals that show how these long-living creatures provide our oceans with a healthy ecosystem.
Deep-sea corals are windows into the past and allow scientists to examine previous environmental change.
What are the corals telling us now? What makes them the most diverse and productive animal on Earth? Join us this Thursday and find out!
