Summary
Aug 2:  arrive Ofu

Aug 3: site orientation with Dan Barshis and Lance Smith (U of Hawaii)
Aug 4: site orientation and species selection
Aug 5: PAM for dark-adapted corals in pool 300
Aug 6: PAM for dark-adapted corals in pool 400, coral tissue samples for Andrew Baker (Columbia U)
Aug 7: PAM for dark-adapted corals in pool 400, more coral tissue samples in pool 400, assist U of Hawaii researchers with transplant study
Aug 8: PAM for dark-adapted coral transplants (Lance Smith); daytime PAM for discolored Porites corals, daytime PAM in pool 400
Aug 9: PAM for dark-adapted corals in pool 300, more coral tissue samples in pool 300
Aug 10: rapid light curves (PAM) for corals in pool 400 (both daytime and night-time), collect coral tissue samples at Sili for Andrew Baker
Aug 11: rapid light curves (PAM) for corals in pool 300 (both daytime and night-time), collect coral tissue samples in pool 300 for Andrew Baker
Aug 12: PAM for dark-adapted corals in pool 400, light-adapted corals in pool 300
Aug 13: PAM for dark-adapted corals in pool 300
Notes
15 coral species used for PAM study.  Site names are U of Hawaii conventions I
don't have GPS coordinates but will request them from UH.
