UW Ocean Senior Thesis 2015 Data Poster Presentation

Tuesday March 10th 2015 9:00am - 4:00pm Ocean Teaching Building Room 051

The UW Oceanography department has a unique requirement of its seniors: to participate in self-directed project design, data collection, data analysis, and interpretation during the Ocean 443/444/445 series. This year students either participated in the December 11-21st cruise TN316 to Nootka Sound, B.C., or designed and built an ocean-sensing device. Join us this coming Tuesday to learn about their progress.  Check the program to see when individuals will be present with their posters to answer your questions.
