We are looking into a rapid, non-invasive, lab-based method to determine 
growth on both plate and branching corals. The neutral buoyancy method 
does not work well with the small size of our nubbins. We are looking into 
photogrammetry as a means to determine growth. I have a few references 
that use photography but was wondering if there are any other methods 
available or if anyone could provide any helpful tips.
