The Global Ocean, SEA Semester class C-255 begins!
We now have a full company onboard the Corwith Cramer in Barcelona, with 21 students familiarizing themselves with their new home.  All are well and excited to begin the first “Global Ocean” program.

We will stay in Barcelona to work on research projects in the port for the next three days.  We will depart on Saturday morning, bound for Mallorca, through the Straits of Gibraltar, Madeira and the Canary Islands, with science all along the way and lots of activities in our ports of call.  Our goal is to understand something about the way we humans have impacted coastal and ocean environments and every student is working on at least three projects.  It will be a busy cruise, but enthusiasm is high!

Watch this spot for information about our ship, our crew, our research projects, and our activities at sea and ashore.
