Our Experiment
  • We are going to measure the affect of motor oil
    on coral bleaching
  • We decided to do this because boats are obviously
    a major part of the marine environment and oil
    that they may leak could potentially have a
    damaging affect on corals

3
So Far
  • We have measured zooxanthellae density, protein
    concentration, and chlorophyll concentration of a
    coral polyp

4
  • We mixed 25 ml of motor oil with 225 ml of salt
    water (19) and used a magnetic mixer so that we
    will be able to extract the water soluble
    contents of the oil to put in with our coral

5
From Here
  • We will add some of the water soluble portion of
    the oil into our tank and then continue to
    measure the zooxanthellae density, protein
    concentration, and chlorophyll concentration

6
What we still need to determine
  • Amount of water soluble portion of oil to put in
    tank
  • If we should consistently add more or just
    measure one amount over several weeks
  • Differences between the oil we are using and oil
    that is typically used in boats
