Workshop #1 – Experimental Design Protocol Recommendations 22-24 May 2019

The goal of this workshop will be to create and make available the following tools:

i. Recommendations for coral bleaching experimental designs so that results can be more easily compared among studies
ii. Recommendation for baseline variable(s) that all studies should strive to include to facilitate cross study comparisons
iii. Recommendations for units to be used for reporting measurements.
iv. A list of ongoing experiments so new researchers can propose collaborations to make additional measurements within, or contributions to, existing studies

When:  22-24 May 2019

Where:  School of Earth Science, Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA
