    In these corona times, please bear in mind we will have limited options for field work and lab work. We are looking for students for theoretical and photo-analysis work on corals from artificial reefs in Kenya. We want to elucidate relationships of depth and mineral accretion techniques to coral growth and bleaching resistance. Also we would like to study what common practices are of cleaning reefs and what types of materials are used in building the artificial reefs.
