Shachak Pe’eri, Jenn Dijkstra, and Brian Madore are collaborating with ecologists from the Israel Oceanographic and Limnological Research Institute on two projects designed to accurately and efficiently map nearshore environments using two marine environments in Israel as test sites.

The 2014 field season is upon us. In addition to all of the work taking place here in the lab, at the coast, and in Great Bay, we are participating in 12 research cruises. Check out our summer cruise schedule to see where in the world we'll be!
