To kick off the official start of the semester, the Bowdoin Marine Science Semester traveled to Bowdoin Scientific Station on Kent Island for four days. Here, the group learned about tides and physical ocean processes, held a benthic ecology journal club, and collected data on two long-term intertidal monitoring sites.
We were also excited that the new Director of the BSS on Kent Island and Assistant Professor of Biology, Dr. Patricia Jones, joined us for the trip.
On the way home, we swung by our friends and collaborators’ at the Downeast Institute in Beal’s, ME, to learn about their research and collect some snails for a class project.
