Student oceanographers apply sampling and research protocols for
water chemistry and biological monitoring. This course is
flexible and can be modified to meet individual teacher requests.
For advanced students, an optional research component can be
added as students participate in a chlorophyll productivity
analysis. Equipment available includes an otter trawl net,
plankton net, benthic grab sampler, water capture bottles, secchi
disk, forelule scales, and a weather navigation station.
