View a slideshow of pictures from the Lophelia II 2009: Deepwater Coral - Reefs, Rigs, and Wreck Exploration. The overall goal of this project was to explore new areas of the Gulf of Mexico in search of coral communities; in doing so, we can develop the tools to better predict the occurrence of corals and to understand why they occur where they do. Click on the left and right arrow to scroll through the pictures one by one, or select the play button for an automatic slideshow. This page is best viewed in Netscape 7.1+ or Internet Explorer 5+.
