News Briefs

The Moorea Coral Reef (MCR) LTER site in French Polynesia was featured in Nature's special piece called "Science on the Solstice" (both in print and online) on June 29, 2006. To quote Nature:

"Every day, all over the planet and beyond it, scientists try and make sense of the world in which they live. In this special feature brings you a composite picture of just one of these days -- June 21 2006, the summer solstice.

In the print version, MCR's Sally Holbrook and Gustav Paulay (a collaborator from University of Florida) are shown at 18:29 UT (page 1045) aboard an MCR LTER boat just off Moorea.
