July 20: lab prep for PAM experiment at Maui Ocean Center
July 21: return coral transplants to original collection site; dismantle transp lant sites in Harbor, lab prep for PAM experiment
July 22: calibrate PAM light meter and LI-192SA, collect corals offshore of Sug ar Beach with Maui Ocean Center staff for PAM experiment
July 23: CRAMP monitoring dives with Eric Brown and Hawaii DLNR staff; prepare corals for PAM experiment, collect sediment for PAM experiment
July 24: retrieve transplants and sediment traps from Sugar Beach, begin PAM ex periment
July 25: PAM experiment, buoyant weight for Sugar Beach corals
July 26-28: PAM experiment
July 29: dismantle PAM experiment, measure coral surface areas
