SEA Currents: SSV Corwith Cramer

Hydrothermal Vents and Gold Fish

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.

Afterwards, we were able to create our own fishing regulations on goldfish ("the snack that smiles back"). One of us acted as the regulator while the rest were fishermen, having to abide by laws. During our free time we split up and did different activities; some went to the beach while others played card games or studied.

We finished the day with a documentary on melting glaciers, Chasing Ice, followed a study hall session.
