coralCT was developed by T.M. DeCarlo in the Cohen Lab at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution ( http://www.whoi.edu/cohenlab/ ) with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) grants OCE 1041106 and OCE 1220529, and an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship awarded to Thomas DeCarlo.
coralCT is a MATLAB code for coral calcification and bioerosion analyses. Please see the license, tutorial, and example analysis within the GitHub repository.
