For months, Waring students in John Wigglesworth's Earth, Ocean, and Environment class have conducted field work in Gloucester to support their oceanographic research projects. Last week, they visited Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) to discuss their work with world-class scientists.
"The projects are appropriate for what we can do from the dock and include a range of topics from plankton studies, plastic marine debris, invasive species, and water quality," said John. "[At WHOI] we met world class scientists who are working on the same topics. This brought excitement, connection, and confidence to their projects."
