St. George, Bermuda
As a student in the Functional Coral Reef Ecology course, I had the opportunity to do hands-on work in the field with masters and PhD students. I was responsible for research diving, placing quadrats and transects, as well as producing photomosaics for coral reefs across the country to examine the abundance of biodiversity in each plot. I processed data, completed water quality surveys and performed lab exercises to determine the rate of photosynthesis, respiration and calcification of coral species.
