Fall Open House

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

The Burroughs and Chapin Center for Marine and Wetland Studies is hosting its Fall Open House. Posters and displays will emphasize ongoing Center research initiatives and program capabilities. Center staff and students will be on hand to explain the range of research projects, capabilities and specialized instrumentation. In addition, a number of partnering organizations and agencies will have displays illustrating their regional and cooperative efforts. Following the open house, a brief program will review highlights of Center accomplishments from last year, as well as announcements of new initiatives of potential interest to the community. The focal point of the presentation will be the satellite connection to a ship in the Gulf of Mexico where two Center staff members are working on a research cruise utilizing the famed Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution’s deep submersible “Alvin.” They will check in and provide a brief overview of that project and with some luck, some images of their activities on the cruise.
