Edge of light

Ohio State oceanographer Andrea Grottoli and her colleagues pushed the limits of technology to study how one species of coral manages to survive so deep in the water—and so far away from sunlight.

This work is just the latest in a series of experiments around the world in which Ohio State researchers are working to understand how coral might adapt to climate change.

Get an underwater look at this deep-sea research.
