Hello coral list,
It was great to see some many old friends and make many new ones this  
past week at the ICRS, it was great meeting!  But I  was unable to  
recruit  an AAUS  NITROX diver to help me from July 19 to July 31 for  
juvenile corals surveys in the Florida Keys. One of my divers has had  
to cancel at the last minute. 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. I hope to have a team of 8 in the water.

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 (~$500 per week). If you could only commit  for one  
week (July 19 - 26th or July 27 - July 31) please let me know and it  
might work out.

If you are interested please contact me ASAP 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.
