OCEAN 443/444 - Advanced Field Oceanography

These courses constitute the first and second parts of the senior thesis experience. During the two part course, students design research projects covering facets of all four oceanographic sub-disciplines. Students conduct research at sea aboard the R/V Thomas G. Thompson. In addition to planning their own research, the students are responsible for much of the cruise planning. The class members have nine weeks to complete their sample processing, data analysis, and prepare a manuscript using the format for the journal of Limnology and Oceanography. Final results are posted to the course web site after a two day class symposium.
