As much as I hope my lab notes are a learning experience for my supporters, it is a important for me to learn how to describe my research to the scientific community and general public in a clear and concise manner. Therefore, I encourage questions in the hope of forming an intelligent dialouge between me and my supporters. Thank you for the interest and support.

Thank you Dr. and Mrs. Emanuel. I cannot thank you enough. The GoPros will allow me to collect basic data on these coral reefs, which will allow me to further advance the research within the next few years. Happy New Year! Hope to see you next time I am in New Jersey. If you are ever south of the equator, let me know!
