One Week Down, Three to Go! (Science at SEA Session 2)
July 15, 2021
This blog post is from Class C-297B (Session 2), Science at SEA, which is now on campus and which will join the SSV Corwith Cramer on July 22nd.
This is our blog entry for July 15th, 2021. One week down, three to go!
During Oceanography we learned how chlorophyll works in the photosynthesis process. Dr. Page gave us a demo with a spectrometer (and some leaves) to show us how wavelengths were absorbed by Chlorophyll A.
Today in Nautical Sciences we learned how to chart courses on paper maps. We covered map distortion, plotting courses, and coordinates.
It may seem trivial, but the highlight of our day was popsicles in the shade!
At free time a group of us went to the beach on Buzzards Bay. We found two hermit crabs (sorry, no one got any pictures), saw an osprey, played frisbee, and attempted to bodysurf. Unfortunately this isn’t California so it didn’t quite work out, but it was still fun to try.
In addition to what we learned about People & Fish in our Oceans and Society class, we spent our Exploratory period watching the film Sacred Cod. It focused on a local community and the effects of the declining fisheries in the Gulf of Maine.
