Oceanography in Pedder Bay


Both first year Marine Science classes set out to “describe and explain the spatial variation in temperature and salinity in Pedder Bay” last week. D block went out on Thursday 15 November while B block went on Friday 16 November.

They measured and recorded temperature and salinity, at six locations within Pedder Bay and at each location every meter from the surface to the sea floor.

Students also recorded abiotic factors at each station including wind speed & direction, air temperature and Secchi depth.

The data have not yet been analyzed, but will be soon!  Stay tuned…
