We are very proud to say that the NSF (National Science Foundation) funded Research Grant has been published in PLOS ONE: an inclusive, peer-reviewed, open-access resource from the PUBLIC LIBRARY OF SCIENCE.

 

 This had been an amazing experience and to be a part of it and to be one of the Authors on this project is something I am very proud of and would like to share with all of you.

 Special thanks to Andrea Grottoli (The Ohio State University), who contacted me, and brought me in to be a part of this project. Reef Systems Coral Farms unique dedication to the farming, propagation and sustainability of Corals allowed us to be a part of this valuable research. I enjoyed working with everyone on the NSF funded Research Grant and to be a part of something much larger than me.  To see the dedication in students and professors on something that is so important was very exciting inspirational.  I am very fortunate to have been involved in this project and would like to thank everyone who took part in research. 

 

 Thank you,

Title:  NSF Ocean Acidification Funding granted to Ohio State University faculty member Andrea Grottoli


     With increasing levels of carbon dioxide accumulating in the atmosphere and moving into marine systems, the world's oceans are becoming more acidic, scientists have shown.  To address the growing concern for acidifying marine systems, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded 21 grants under the Ocean Acidification theme of its Climate Research Investment  http://www.nsf.gov/news/news_summ.jsp?cntn_id=117823&org=NSF&from=news . Included among them are Ohio State University's Dr. Andrea Grottoli   www.earthsciences.osu.edu/~grottoli.1  and her team (Dr. Mark Warnere, University of Delaware; Dr. Wei-Jun Cai, University of Georgia; Todd Melman, Reef Systems Coral Farm, OH).  Grottoli's project will investigate the possible synergistic and antagonistic effects of elevated temperature, carbon dioxide, and nutrients on the physiology and internal calcifying chemistry of several species of corals in a laboratory setting. Research tools include the assessment of coral energy reserves and metabolic demand, symbiotic algal physiology and molecular diversity, coral calcification, and direct measurement of the internal coral pH and carbonate concentration via microprobes.

Make sure you watch the video all the way through, so you can get a glimpse of the collaboratife efforts Reef Systems coral Farm

has with Andrea Grotolli and The Ohio State University.

ENJOY!!!!
