BEAMS in the Bay

April 30, 2015 by eTrac

eTrac hosted 8 students from the College of Charleston’s BEAMS (BEnthic Acoustic Mapping and Survey) Program to conduct a survey of Raccoon Strait in the San Francisco Bay. The students were able to learn and assist in the survey set up and acquisition, gaining valuable hands-on experience. Students in the BEAMS program will be able to process and analyze the collected data during future research and independent study projects.
