Ship will be open to meeting attendees from 4–6 p.m., Fri. 13 March, and 9 a.m.–noon, Sat. 14 March in St. Petersburg. Univ. of South Florida (USF) Marine Science Laboratory dock, located at the end of 7th Ave South in St Petersburg. Cost: Free, Gary Jaroslow, Sea Education Association.
The 40-m two-masted brigantine Corwith Cramer is an oceanographic sailing vessel built for Sea Education Association (SEA) in Woods Hole, MA as an educational platform for undergraduate and high-school students to study the ocean from multidisciplinary perspectives. State-of-the-art instrumentation for collection and analysis of off-shore marine biological, chemical, geological and physical data will be on display during the tour. SEA data is available upon request to outside researchers, and it is regularly submitted to national archives to provide better access to the oceanographic community. Repeated cruises along relatively remote tracks provide capability for unique spatial and temporal data analyses. Ship tours will highlight student opportunities to engage in experiential learning of oceanography and nautical sciences.
