"Geoscience Major Elliot Hayne '20 Conducts Research in the Pacific"
Elliot Hayne ’20, a geosciences major, sailed with SEA Semester on a scientific research voyage to the remote Phoenix Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Hayne conducted research that will assist in the ongoing development of an effective conservation plan for the region.
The Phoenix Islands Protected Area (PIPA) is one of the last remaining coral wildernesses on Earth, about which little is known. An expanse of ocean about the size of California, it is the largest – and deepest – UNESCO World Heritage site, with eight spectacular and fauna-rich coral atolls.
