Photo of the Week: Bermuda Blue


Associate Professor Andreas Andersson (SIO) and research specialist Tim Noyes (Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences) battling the swell while recovering a CO2 monitoring buoy from the rim reef in Bermuda in 2015. The buoy records temperature, salinity, and CO2 in the water and air every 3 hours. It is part of a study trying to understand the effects of ocean acidification on coral reefs.

The Andersson Ocean Research group recently changed its name to the Scripps Coastal & Open Ocean BiogeochemistrY (SCOOBY) research lab to better reflect the science and research it is conducting. Follow them on Facebook!
