Texas’ Own Coral Reefs: Weathering the Storm

FEBRUARY 16, 2018

Dr. Adrienne Correa

Assistant Professor,
Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Rice University
 
Hurricane Harvey dumped thirteen trillion gallons of rain on southeast Texas in August of 2017. Do extreme storm events like Harvey impact the coral reefs off Texas’ coast, in the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary? Dr. Correa shares ongoing research connecting the Gulf Coast, extreme weather, and reef ecosystems. Supported by the Leon Jones Hot Science - Cool Talks Endowment.
 
The talk is free but registration is required.
