Description:
Intensive 14-day Expeditions are designed to immerse undergraduate & graduate students in the field of Exploration Science. As active participants aboard an ongoing coral reef research expedition, students are challenged with the rigors of marine fieldwork. Participation in every aspect of a live-aboard expedition prepares students for field research within any discipline by enhancing teamwork, problem solving, spontaneous innovation, and other skills required to successfully collect data outside a laboratory, and off-the-grid. The Expeditions integrate formal lectures covering a broad range of current topics in coral reef science, global climate change and ocean conservation. Many lectures are combined with field survey and/or data collection components. Students also become proficient in many cutting-edge techniques used in coral reef research, as well as other scientific disciplines. Additionally, participants learn the fundamentals of seamanship and sailing as they captain and navigate the 50ft catamaran throughout the Exuma archipelago to near-shore and offshore research sites.
