Cruise Report C-131B : scientific activities undertaken aboard SSV Corwith Cramer, Miami, Florida to Norfolk, Virginia, May 6-16, 1994
This cruise report outlines the scientific research and academic program conducted on board the SSV Corwith Cramer during Cruise C-131B. The cruise was designed to introduce students to a wide variety of shipboard oceanographic experience and to provide them with a broad multidisciplinary overview of the marine environment. The students actively participated in deploying oceanographic gear, in analyzing the samples collected and in compiling and interpreting data. In addition, their understanding and respect for the skills necessary to operate a vessel at sea were greatly enhanced by their roles as crew members on board the Corwith Cramer. Navigating and maneuvering the vessel to each oceanographic station, the students steered, worked the sails and determined the vessel's location throughout the cruise. Their practical experience was supplemented by lectures and demonstrations by SEA's staff.
