ObjectivesThe primary purpose of our scientific research is to teach oceanography and oceanographic sampling techniques to college undergraduate students. Each student must design a research project ashore and carry out that research project during the cruise. In addition, some data is collected for long-term research projects carried out by staff scientists at the Sea Education Association. These projects include studies of 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.
