Description of Program

South Broward High School has received a grant from The American Institute of Marine Studies to provide travel funds for participation aboard research vessels that operate in waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean, and North Pacific Ocean. These vessels are engaged in the study of biological oceanography and measurements of the full depths of the oceans as well as the lower atmosphere. Activities include marine mammal observations, ichthyoplankton collection, coral reef studies and hydrothermal vent surveys.The trip is scheduled aboard the WALTON SMITH, a brand new, 90 foot catamaran with state of the art technology operated by the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmosphere Science. Seven female students have been selected to survey the off-shore areas of the Florida Bay. This Students at Sea Program allows participants from South Broward's Marine Magnet Program to be a part of the crew on at-sea settings.
