The Ocean Acidification Program at Mote Marine Laboratory is currently
seeking interns for the Fall and Winter 2018 Terms.

*With a particular need for interns who can begin August /September*


The Ocean Acidification Program focuses on characterizing the physiological
effects of changing ocean pH, as well as temperature and nutrient
concentration, on marine organisms found within coral reef and coastal
ecosystems. Current projects include competition and resilience studies at
the organism and community level.

Interns will learn techniques in measuring carbonate/ocean chemistry,
animal physiology, and water quality. Interns will gain experience in coral
husbandry and maintenance of an ocean acidification water system, as well
as the laboratory techniques required to collect, preserve, and process
water samples.
