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.
