What do Stanford graduates do in their summer vacation?

Several Stanford students spent their summer seeking environmental solutions as part of a unique grant program that provides mentorship for students doing solutions-oriented environmental fieldwork around the world and vital research assistance for faculty. Students and researchers analyzed how seagrass communities off the Pacific island of Palau help buffer nearby corals against ocean acidification, a process driven by increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide that threatens sea life. They gathered information through analysis of water currents and temperatures, as well as sediment and marine life sampling.
