The Marine Field Methods class had its field week earlier this month. They worked from the FSU Marine Lab’s pontoon boat for several days. Two students, Taylor Kirkpatrick and Linoj Vijayan, are part of the EOAS Aquatics degree program.
They did five casts with the YSI handheld, YSI 6600 and SBE in the four cardinal directions. They also obtained two water samples at different depths.
Several EOAS undergrad students participated in Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) this year at FSU. The program provides high-achieving students with the opportunity to conduct research 5-10 hours a week assisting a faculty member, Ph.D. student, or company; meet bi-monthly with a UROP Student Leader and fellow UROP students; receive personalized guidance about research and campus resources; and present at the annual undergraduate research symposium.
