Join cadets majoring in Marine Safety & Environmental Protection as they travel to Bermuda for a non-stop, adventure on lands and sea. They’ll be living and learning at the Bermuda Institute Of Ocean Sciences and exploring almost every inch of the island.
Leading the cadets will be Dr. Heather Burton, an assistant professor at Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Dr. Burton received her Ph.D. in Oceanography from the Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode Island. Her research interests include the biogeochemistry of marine sediments, particularly the carbon and nitrogen cycles. Dr. Burton has participated on research expeditions to the Southern, Pacific, and Atlantic Oceans, the Bering Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico. Dr. Burton will be joined by two distinguished colleagues; Dr. Kryzsztof Jop and Dr. Kristin Osborne.
The adventure begins on Tuesday, January 30th when cadets arrive on campus on the eve of their departure. The cadets will study in Bermuda until Saturday, February 10th. During that time, please check back for daily updates.
