Geology of the Florida Keys

This is a collaborative group of three students working to create a set of content documents and teaching "conversations" for a ~15 minute on-boat lesson during the week long field study in the Florida Keys.

"Last Monday's class cleared up how the atolls sank, the coral is not the major cause of their sinking, it is the weight of the magma that comes out of the volcano. I was confused about how the coral weighed this much, but this cleared it up for…"

andrew nordbye replied to Sean Nash's discussion Coral Reef Formation
"Last class did clear up a lot of information about the atolls relating to the book The Enchanted Braid, and when the coral reef causes the volcano to sink, where does it sink to? Isn't it already at the bottom next to the tectonic plates? That…"

andrew nordbye replied to Sean Nash's discussion Coral Reef Formation
"I did not know there were different types of coral either until last mondays class. It was cool to find out information about how the coral reef can only grow in certain temperatures, being mostly warm temps. around the equator. Nice job Paula!"

andrew nordbye replied to Sean Nash's discussion Coral Reef Formation
"I thought last weeks discussion was very interesting. The thing that amazed me were the atolls and how they were formed. I realized that these atolls were old volcanoes that were islands, but the coral grew around the volcano, causing it to sink…"

"Great job explaining the Ocean Zones! I think it is crazy how they just told the people to get off the island so they could blow it up. That was their home!? All it did was test a bomb and hurt the enviornment. Although Mr. Nash did talk about the…"

"It is crazy to me how we could eat at a lower trophic level and have 10 times as much food as we would have the next trophic level up. It doesn't make sense to me when everyone is eating at high trophic levels. Eating at lower trophic levels is…"

The Intriguing Coral Reef

The first four chapters of The Enchanted Braid have led me very interested in the coral reef. I think that it is amazing how things so small and so big live in the habitat. I think that it is really amazing how Osha Gray Davidson, author of The Enchanted Braid, has been to the coral reef in the florida keys. im wondering if we are going to the same spot he did? that would be cool. I also think its cool how in chapter 4, pg 45, he said, "In practice, each of us gnawed away ineffectually at the… Continue

New hermit crab uses live coral as its home

A new hermit crab species can live in a walking coral's cavity in a reciprocal relationship, replacing the usual marine worm partner, according to a new study.

Big herbivorous dinosaurs ate crustaceans as a side dish

Some big plant-eating dinosaurs roaming present-day Utah some 75 million years ago were slurping up crustaceans on the side, a behavior that may have been tied to reproductive activities, says a new study.

Going diving in the tropics? Don't eat the reef fish!

Reducing tourist consumption of reef fish is critical for Palau's ocean sustainability, finds a new study that suggests other small island nations might also consider adopting this strategy.

Efforts to save sea turtles are a 'global conservation success story'

A new study of the world's seven sea turtle species provides evidence that their numbers are growing overall (unlike many endangered vertebrates), thanks to years of conservation efforts that have played a key role in sea turtle recovery -- even for small sea turtle populations.

Protected waters foster resurgence of West Coast rockfish

West Coast rockfish species in deep collapse only 20 years ago have multiplied rapidly in large marine protected areas off Southern California, likely seeding surrounding waters with enough offspring to offer promise of renewed fishing, a new study has found.
