SEA Semester

It’s been ten years since the Woods Hole Diversity Initiative launched the Partnership Education Program (PEP) in 2009. The 11th PEP cohort, which numbers 14 students, recently completed their classroom work at SEA, as well as a short cruise aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer, and are now living on the SEA campus while they do internships at scientific organizations in Woods Hole.

Hello from a wavy ship!

Charlotte, Indi, Young, C Watch

Hello.

This is now our 4th day at sea (without seeing land). C watch has completed a full rotation of watches. Today during our watch from 1300 to 1900, there were a lot of big waves and plenty of things to keep us occupied.

Classes
Today was the last day of classes. We had an oceanography class about marine biology and then oceans and society. In Oceanography, we learned about the species of life in the ocean, from the Cambrian era to modern-day. We also learned about the intricate taxonomy of the oceans.

Another Super Day

Eliza, Ariane, Tamara, Diego, Eleni, Jackson, Tim, B Watch

Hey there land people!   

It was quite a thrilling and busy day on the Corwith Cramer! Amongst the mighty waves, we saw a large pod of common dolphins (a few of which rode our bow) and flying fish just a few hours later. Meanwhile in the lab, there was lots of processing going on because this morning we had our first Super Station on the Continental Shelf.
