MCR Core Activity Process-Oriented Field Studies A series of process-oriented field studies motivated by our initial focused questions have been initiated to explore gaps in our understanding of physical and biological processes and events that affect structure, function and dynamics of the reef ecosystem of Moorea; additional integration is achieved by focusing on common model systems.
Research Theme Ocean Acidification A fundamental goal of the MCR is to advance understanding that enables accurate forecasts of the behavior of coral reef ecosystems to environmental forcing. To this end, we seek to understand the mechanistic basis of change in coral reefs by determining how they are influenced by the press drivers to which they are increasingly being subjected, especially those associated with an increasing degree of ocean acidification.
MCR-LTER Working Group Physiology of Corals Even upon casual inspection, it is clear that a tropical coral reef is more than simply the sum of the parts. Our goal is to understand how abiotic and biotic forcing functions affect the functional biology of corals, and to incorporate these effects into a model with the capacity to integrate the understanding of reef corals across spatial, temporal and functional scales.
