Bamboo Corals record both surface and deep ocean conditions via their organic nodes and calcite internodes, respectively. In a manner similar to tree ring analysis, cores through the coral reveal pattern in time. Student project will involve both lab work with the scanning electron microscope (SEM/EBSD) and data analysis. Project requires student apply for Bowdoin College fellowship.

Having just returned from two years at the National Science Foundation, Peter is ready to support student research on a variety of topics in a more exploratory mode. Students will be required to obtain Bowdoin College fellowships.
Students will focus on one of three subprojects within the broader project. Depending upon subproject, activities may include lab and field work and certainly data analysis. Requires Bowdoin College fellowship application.
