Science under sail : ocean science education program combines traditional vessels with state-of-the-art technology
MetadataShow full item record
Sea Education Association (SEA), located in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, offers introductory oceanographic instruction in the classroom and hands-on research training at sea to create a unique educational experience for undergraduate students and other groups. Founded by Corwith Cramer in 1971, SEA has been taking students to sea for over 30 years, first on the 125-foot research vessel R/V Westward, and now on two custom-built Sailing School Vessels, the 134-foot steel brigantines SSV Corwith Cramer and SSV Robert C. Seamans. SEA vessels have sailed over 800,000 miles in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and educated over 7,000 students in oceanography, nautical science, and in maritime history, literature, and policy. This article describes recent developments and opportunities in oceanographic education and research at SEA.
