Osha's Blog

Great interview about the Great Barrier Reef

There was a fascinating radio interview today (you can listen to it here) with one of the leading authorities on reefs, Charlie Veron. He has a new book, A Reef In Time, about the GBR and the effects of warming, acidification, etc. He also talks about some of the 7,000 dives he's made.…

I wanted to say hello before leaving for a short hike. Sean Nash invited me to join your blog -- thanks! Where I use to live in Iowa City may become a good place to study marine biology if it keeps raining there. Gotta go, but I'll be back. I'm excited to be sharing the blogosphere with you.

hey osah. i got the package you sent me. Mr. Nash called me and said i had a package. so i was like ok. (i had no idea what it could possibly have been) so i get to his house and he takes me out to his car and hands me a package. im like HOLY CRAP! this is from OSHA GRAY DAVIDSON! at this point im like sweet i got like an autographed copy of the book or something since i hadnt gotten mine yet. but Mr. Nash was like "this is much better" i opened it up and my mouth almost hit the driveway! i was COMPLETELY blown away! never in my life had i been so excited over something someone has gave me. my smile started to hurt because i couldnt wipe it off my face! it was the coolest thing anyone has ever given me. Truly Osha you are a good man and i cant thank you enough for this gift you have given me. I did nothing to deserve it and i couldnt be happier to have it. it sitting on my desk like you asked man. and there it will stay until i can pass it on to a kid who loves the reef like i do. Osha just sending me that little piece of rock has done more than you know. Thank you osha,

Torin Mckinly

That's a hard one -- for me, at least. My guess is that it depends on which coral reef, since threats vary by location. And do you mean fluctuation in water temperature or sea level rise and fall?

I have a question. What would you say is more devastating to the coral reefs: fluctuations of the water or humans?

On page 18 of The Enchanted Braid, it says, "... there are places on Earth in which corals live on structures built by there ancestors and predecessors, going down 7,220 feet, well over a mile." So, does this mean corals are like a bioligical volcano? Where are some of these places that these structures exist?
