I am in need of an AAUS status diver with NITROX certification to
assist in a coral survey project from July 19 to July 28 2007 in the
Florida Keys. The project is an assessment of coral population
dynamics in protected and unprotected sites in the lower and upper
Keys that has been ongoing since 1998. The other Principal
Investigators are Rich Aronson, John Ogden and Brian Keller. The
project is funded by NOAA and a prospective divers must be able to
provide a AAUS reciprocity letter to the Sanctuary.
Ideally I need a diver capable to setting up and recording video
transects. But I would consider adding someone who is very familiar
with coral identification to assist in juvenile coral surveys in
permanent quadrats at our sites.
I am hoping to recruit a diver from the south Florida area who can
transport themselves down to the Keys. All transportation expenses
will be covered along with food and lodging. I can provide a modest
stipend as well.
If you are interested please contact me at biorss at langate.gsu.edu and
send a short summary of your dive qualifications and research
experience, along with contact info for a science diving referee.
