Aaron Cevallos, 2012, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

I spent my summer as an intern at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) working with Dr. Andreas Andersson. I researched the effects of ocean acidification on coral reefs. Specifically, I compared two methods for measuring coral growth rates: the buoyant weighing and alkalinity anomaly methods. For my experiments, I used samples of the coral species Diploria strigosa.
