SCMSC Research Oceanographer Lauren Toth will leave this week for the first part of a bi-annual research expedition to study the coral reefs of Pacific Panama. On this trip, Toth will visit the Gulf of Chiriqui, a region that experienced severe coral bleaching and mortality in response to the 2015–16 El Niňo event. With the help of graduate students and academic collaborators Toth will re-survey a network of oceanographic and ecological monitoring stations designed to measure the long-term response of the reefs to this climatic disturbance.
