Research Grant
Asst. Professor of Biology Branwen Williams
Assistant Professor of Biology Branwen Williams has been awarded a $41K grant by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to study deep-sea corals using a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) during a three day research cruise offshore of Monterey Bay. The project will determine ages and growth rates of these deep-sea corals, and reconstruct environmental stressors to the corals. This is critical to conservative efforts of these long-lived marine organisms that are distributed in deep waters off of the United States coast.
