MSI: The New Interns Arrive!

This morning we welcomed our second batch of MSI interns who swiftly bounded into action. After a brief introduction to the program and each other, the interns hopped into the reach to complete their check-out dive.

Checked out and prepped to dive on a later, more weather-conducive date, the interns then went to go work in the coral lab on Ms. Kascia White's ocean acidification study. Michael Fuhrtz reported that, "
Today we went over the major types of fish mainly seen around the coast & reefs as well as the basic diving skills. The best part for today was working in the lab measuring the length & width of baby corals found in three different ecosystems using the image j computer program"
