Coral imaging

21 March 2018 – I’m working at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem with Jonathan Erez. We are growing corals over glass slides and using an inverted microscope to study the formation of the aragonite skeleton in real time. na1


NERC Ion microprobe facility

I’m having a quiet Monday evening running the ion probe in Edinburgh, looking at the effects of ocean acidification on coral biomineralisation. It’s just me and the corals…


A busy May 2017

NERC have allocated me beamtime at the Ion Microprobe Facility at Edinburgh University to investigate how increasing seawater temperatures and pCO2 affect the chemistry of coral calcification fluids and thereby impact coral reef accretion. Also a big thank you to MASTS for partially funding the purchase of a new dissolved oxygen meter for the coral lab.
