For the fifth and final stop on this unbelievable trip, we visited the University of West Florida in Pensacola. We observed rivers around a local watershed and examined how urbanization has impacted rates of erosion and pollution inputs.
Before entering this course I was had no idea what to expect. Each University or site visited was unique in its own way. Each week we were presented with everyday challenges/questions that Marine Biologist face and ways to over come these challenges. This course has given me an opportunity to confidently use different high quality instruments in the field.
