My aims for COR(AL)OHA are threefold:
(1) to serve as a portal for students and others to learn about marine biology, coral reefs, and phenomena in the ocean;
(2) to inform a broad audience of my research and research in my lab-home in Hawai'i, as well as general science news;
(3) to showcase an array of digital media to communicate science in exciting and interactive ways.
Finally, I must thank my friends and collaborators for helping in the collection, logistics, and synthesis of materials presented on this site. The principal exponents of these projects: Dr. Garen Baghdasarian (SMC) and Santa Monica College, John Burns (UH) and Nick Turner at the UH Hilo SDAV Lab, and Sly Lee (The Hydrous). Thank you all for your support and fruitful discussions.
I hope you enjoy the site; I look forward to sharing my passion with the ocean and coral reefs with you.
