Group sampling for plankton, getting a close look at marine plants, students viewing the bay

Undergraduate and gradute students have been studying marine science at the EOS Center since it was first established in 1978. With its close proximity to salt marshes, rocky intertidal areas, sandy beaches and open water, the EOS Center is a perfect setting for active field study. State of the art research facilities are available for student research, as well as a fleet of research vessels that are suitable for research activities in the Bay.
