Hi Gene and coral-listers!
I am an intern working at ReefHQ (Townsville, Australia). My research
project, based on the mineral accretion technology, is a controlled
experiment to determine the effect of an electric field on the growth
rate of coral transplants (Acropora secale and Pocillopora damicornis).
Results will be available within the next few months.
