1991 Edwin W. Pauley Summer Program in Marine Biology

Boundary Layers and Carbon Limitation in Coral Reefs

June - August, 1991

1990 Pauley Summer Program Group

The 1991 Edwin W. Pauley Summer Program in Marine Biology focused on developing a better understanding of the coundary layers and carbon limitation in coral reefs. The Point Lab, location of coral reef research activities at HIMB, underwent renovation in preparation for the Summer Program. The solar simulator room was expanded to provide more space for working radioactively labelled carbon in phytoplankton studies. Students participated in the usual classroom sessions. In addition to classroom work, several workshops were conducted: Virginia demonstrated techniques for measuring protein content of tissues, Michael set up the photosythotron, an apparatus for measuring photosynthesis in small samples of phytoplankton, and taught students how to assay for the enzyme superoxidase dismutase, and Mark brought from UC Davis an impressive video system for analysing pattern and motion. And of course there were innumerable early morning coffee sessions, round table discussions, potlucks, and late night sample processing.
