During this half-day Symposium, experts and educators from NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation Program and Coral Reef watch gave an overview of the biology of coral and coral reefs and showed the participants how satellite data is used to understand and predict coral bleaching events and ocean acidification. The participants engaged in hands-on experiments which illustrated the effects of ocean acidification and helped learners understand the structure and biology of a coral polyp.
