Center for Global Discovery and Conservation Science at Arizona State University


Take a dive along Hawaiʻi’s beautiful Kona Coast on the Big Island with Dr. Robin Martin, Associate Professor at ASU, to learn how corals get their color and the important role of symbiotic algae in maintaining coral health and contributing to coral’s unique pigments. Robin also explains her process in the lab to measure coral pigments.
