Biology 017. Cape Cod Barrier Beach Spring Ecology
A unique academic field experience where a maximum of 8 students will study the spring ecology of a classic Cape Cod barrier beach/salt marsh ecosystem. Nestled among towering sand dunes and adjacent to a 3000 hectare salt marsh, students will live amidst and study within the spring beach system from a recently renovated dune house field station. The course is intended to introduce students to the field methodology and logistics associated with an ongoing, long-term coastal marine study. As an introduction to barrier beach ecology, students from all educational fields are encouraged to apply.
