Deploying the Neuston Net

SEA Semester


With nearly 50 years of surface neuston tow data, SEA's archives offer the unique opportunity to examine biological response to global change. SEA Semester leverages the opportunities presented by its remote, open ocean cruise tracks and repeated annual sampling to build valuable datasets in poorly studied areas of the world.

Student policy research aims to first identify the most pressing issues along each cruise track, then explore and expand upon ongoing adaptation, mitigation, and response efforts by local governments and agencies.
