Thanks for the coral-list note regarding:
>Hello Coral Reef Community,
> My University (Univ. of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada) is member of the
>World Bank funded project for the monitoring of coral reef at global
>remote sensing. My specific research area is on the water column optical
>Prior starting the Ph.D. I lived and extensively scuba dove, for 8 years
>'92-'99, in the red sea area (Egypt). For what I know, Red Sea was not
>within the field study areas because it is said to be too damaged.
>I am wondering what it means "too damaged".
>I would be interested in getting in touch with people that worked or is
>currently working in the Sinai peninsula or along the eastern coast of
>(Hurgada) up to Sudan to actually verify the possibility to develop and
>research studies to those area.
>Any help or comments is very much appreciated
>Thanks in advance.
