Galápagos Corals: Canaries in the Coal Mine | Livestream Zoom + Recorded

Course Description:

The Galápagos Islands represent a good case study for understanding the future of coral reefs, given its extended history of bleaching. The 1982-1983 El Nino event killed 97% of corals; yet some Galápagos corals have persevered and may be uniquely thermally resistant. Dr. Cheryl Logan discusses her research on corals in the Galápagos, highlighting the use of corals as indicators of the health of the ocean. Dr. Logan is currently conducting research on coral resilience to heat stress from ocean warming events such as climate change and El Nino Southern Oscillations (ENSO).
