Birthday

Cari Harris, Morgan State University

SEA Semester

Often times the lasting impact of an experience is not something we expect. I had arrived at the SEA campus on June 2. My 21st birthday would be on June 5th. So inevitably I was anxious about being away from home at a momentous stage in my life. My mother, family, and friends weren’t excited about not being able to celebrate this time with me. I was a little sad about not being able to celebrate it with them, as well.

My PEP Experience so far

Elizabeth Smith, Spelman College

SEA Semester

Hey yall! My name is Elizabeth “Liz” Smith. I am a junior environmental science major from Spelman College in Atlanta, Ga. If you hadn’t guess from my use of “yall”, I am a Southern Belle. This is my first time in the New England and I am loving it! It took a few days to get use to the weather (I left 85 degrees with a summer breeze for 65 and a wind chill. What was I thinking?!) but after 3 weeks here in Falmouth I am well acclimated.

Measuring Forest Biomass

Franklina Yeboah, University of Maryland Eastern Shore

SEA Semester

My favorite day so far has been going into the field of Woods Hole Research Center in Falmouth Massachusetts to get a close look and collect data on the biomass of the different types of trees at the back of the Woods Hole Research Center. The purpose of this field work was to measure and monitor the above-ground of biomass and also see how carbon affects climate change. We started the field work by dividing ourselves into four different groups. Each group was given a compass, measuring tape, flags and a diameter measuring tape.

New England’s Biodiversity

Miranda Van Allen, University of Rhode Island

SEA Semester

My favorite day so far has been going out into the field of Wood Neck Beach in Falmouth, Massachusetts to get a closer look and collect data on the biodiversity within a rocky intertidal habitat. Being from this area and working closely with the species that live throughout the New England coastlines, I felt very confident identifying different species and had so much fun being outdoors in the beautiful weather.

Lectureship honors Ambrose Jearld, Jr. for promoting diversity

SEA Semester

The Woods Hole scientific community on Saturday honored Ambrose Jearld, Jr., influential NOAA researcher and SEA overseer, with an annual lectureship in recognition of his efforts to make oceanography and marine biology more accessible to a diverse body of students and research faculty.

The surprise presentation was made at Jearld’s retirement party at Fisher House, Church of the Messiah, in Woods Hole. Jearld retired from NOAA Fisheries Service on Sept. 2 after 38 years of service.

The Ambrose Jearld, Jr. Lecture, established and administered by the Diversity Initiative and Diversity Advisory Committee, will be given every summer in Woods Hole by invited scholars, scientists, and authors. The lectures will begin next summer, coinciding with the biennial John K. Bullard Diversity Award.
