The Earth & Planetary Sciences Department and GECS program are pleased to announce a new Hopkins Intersession Abroad course in Bermuda on ocean science and the carbon cycle that will be offered during the January 2018 intersession.  The course will be taught at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) by Dr. Anand Gnanadesikan with assistance from BIOS faculty and staff.  This hands-on course will involve learning to create basic models of the carbon cycle in a marine setting and to make measurements of carbon cycling in lagoon, coral reef, and deep ocean environments.  Field work will involve snorkeling and a one-day research cruise conducted aboard the 170-foot R/V Atlantic Explorer to visit and collect data from Hydrostation S, the world’s longest-running hydrographic time-series with a location offshore Bermuda.  For more information, visit the JHU Study Abroad Office’s program website.
