Hello Coral-list,

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.
