Aloha and welcome to the “It’s Not Boring” blog. In this website you will learn all about my adventures and discoveries in the science of bioerosion . Bioerosion is a natural process that occurs on coral reefs in which a community of organisms erode, or bore into, coral skeleton (hence the name “boring” organisms). We will conduct research on the physical and chemical parameters that affect boring communities, how the community changes over space and time in the Hawaiian Islands, and how climate change and ocean acidification will affect bioerosion on coral reefs. To answer these questions, I will journey throughout the Hawaiian Archipelago (from the Big Island all the way to the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands) and share my travel stories with you. Please see my pages on bioerosion (knowing about bioerosion is super cool and important 🙂 ) and ocean acidification (the latest information on ocean acidification and climate change and what YOU can do to help prevent the detrimental effects of climate change). I hope that you enjoy my blog, research findings, and travel stories and please feel free to contact me!
