Hello everyone! This blog will be maintained by the students and instructors as part of the Marine Field Studies Course which is designed to lead students around the entire state, learning about estuaries, dune systems, marine microbiology, coral reef ecology, and the open ocean! During this third year of the program, five institutions within the Florida Institute of Oceanography (www.fio.usf.edu) are involved with this course- the University of West Florida, University of North Florida, Florida Atlantic University, Florida Gulf Coast University and the University of South Florida St. Petersburg.
The course begins May 13th and both students and instructors will be posting a short bio about themselves and their involvement in this exciting opportunity! We can't wait to get started!
