Today we started our plunge into scientific learning by starting out the morning lecture with a presentation from Zac Forsman, a coral researcher here at HIMB. After lunch we took what we learned from day 2 and used GIS navigation compasses and transects to document marine organisms along transects in Goby Bay on Coconut Island.
Check out the pictures of us snorkeling in Goby Bay and all the interesting marine life we found along the transects!
After lunch we gathered in the classroom to ‘geotag’ our transect pictures onto Google Earth. Now when you search for Goby Bay, Coconut Island on Google Earth you can view photos of what the scenery and organisms under water look like!
