OCEAN 220 - Intro to Field Oceanography

This class is an experiential course in which students practice the scientific method from A-Z. During Spring Break, all students convene in the San Juans to plan research. Then the class participates in a cruise aboard one of the UW's research ships for 1-3 days collecting data. After this, students finish post-cruise lab work, interpret findings, and write a research paper focusing on their efforts.
