ObjectivesThe primary purpose of our scientific research is to teach the subject of oceanography and oceanographic sampling techniques to undergraduate, college students. Each student must design a research project ashore and carry out that research project during the cruise. Additionally, data is collected for long-term research projects carried out by staff scientists at the Sea Education Association (SEA) facility in Woods Hole, MA. These projects include studies measuring the abundance and distribution of plankton, floating tar and plastic, the biology of thermal fronts, the geology of carbonate banks and islands and the comparative ecology of shallow productive banks.
