Hydrothermal Vents and Gold Fish

Avery Coble & David Caron, Hun School of Princeton & Cheshire Academy
SEA Semester

Today we woke up to the smell of bacon, cooked by the wonderful chef Marissa. We were then full and focused for the lecture by Dr. Susan Humphris, on Hydrothermal Vents and spent the morning soaking up Dr. Humphris’s imense knowledge. After the invigorating lecture, we learned all about the difficulties of creating fishing regulations and what their impacts can be. Once finished with lunch, we used our cleaning abilities.

SEA Semester

Students from across the country arrived at SEA campus today to beautiful sunshine and a delicious barbecue dinner. All twenty-four kids took some time to settle into their houses, play frisbee and volleyball, and endure some ice-breaker games with Maggie and I (your very excited RA’s).

To mark Undergraduate Research Week, we’re continuing to feature the inspiring investigations planned by our current class on campus, C-259, Marine Biodiversity & Conservation. (In case you missed it, here are Part 1 and Part 2.)

In just a few days, they’ll set sail from San Juan, Puerto Rico to New York City via Bermuda. Along the way, they’ll undertake a variety of scientific studies on the Sargasso Sea, that vast portion of the North Atlantic Ocean that is a major focus of conservation efforts.

Here’s a look at the final two projects that our student research teams plan to conduct:

Happy Undergraduate Research Week!

Anne Broache, communications@sea.edu
SEA Semester

It’s no secret that field research is a mainstay of SEA Semester programs. But this week, in celebration of national Undergraduate Research Week, we wanted to shine a special spotlight on our students’ ambitious work.

Take the Sargasso Sea, that giant expanse of the North Atlantic Ocean that has in recent years become a major focus of multinational conservation efforts.

Our current class on campus, C-259, Marine Biodiversity & Conservation, is one week away from sailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico to New York City via Bermuda—right through the heart of this critical ecosystem. And, as they proved during presentations of their research proposals on Monday, they’re ready to do some serious science to aid the Sargasso Sea’s long-term protection plans.

Over the next few days, we’ll feature their research plans on this blog, starting with these two projects:
