after a long break

i was really dissapointed that i had left this page for nearly a year. lot of things happen and it seems at one stage, i lost interest in writing again. this must change. writing is a good activity. it ignites your brain to think.

i already completed my degree in Biotechnology in IIUM. and now, i am on my way in pursuing my masters in bioscience in IIUM also. Plus, i got a chance to work under INOCEM IIUM, a research institute which focusing on oceanography and maritime studies.

this is the new beginning

My Final Year Project (IIUM 2010)

"Suspended Sediment Effects towards Coral Ecosystem in Pulau Redang"


Muhammad Faiz bin Mohd Hanapiah

Supervised by

Dr Shahbudin bin Saad


One of the major stressors on corals is the settlement of suspended sediment on their surfaces. This leads to blocking of light, smothering of the coral mucus surface and increased risk of disease. Sedimentation rate on a reef is highly important variable in studies of coral reef. The level of suspended sediment in marine environment is increasing due to development of coastal area and also recreational activities in the coral reef. Research on sedimentation rate is often done by deployment of sediment traps, containers positioned vertically with an open top and capped base. These remain submerge for a period of time before they are removed and the sediment collected in the containers dried and weighted as a quantifiable measurement of sedimentation on the reef.

May Allah give me strength to make it a successful one..
