Introduction to Oceanography

On October 12, 2000 Dr. Peter Vila took his merry band of budding Oceanographers on a field trip to the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences (VIMS), at Wachapreague, VA.

On Friday the 13, the group of sixteen boarded two john boats,

captained by Francis O'Beirn  and P. G.  Francis' crew, accompanied by Dr. Vila took salinity, turbity, and temperature reading. P. G's crew worked a trawl taking samples.
