An interdisciplinary field course in marine and atmospheric systems
The Summer 2005 Field Projects featured 1) atmospheric and water quality monitoring, 2) submerged aquatic vegetation investigations, 3) sea breeze meteorology, and 4) beach profiling for students in oceanography, environmental science, and meteorology. Students in ocean engineering were tasked with the design, construction, and testing of ocean engineering projects. Students also plan and participate in a 4-day research cruise investigating processes off the east coast of Florida. Student research projects are showcased at the end of the program in a special symposium.
