(Left to right across front of room) Erika Hammar-Klose, Page Valentine, Sarah Fuller, and Kara Hass discuss mapping in Stellwagen Bank with students from the Essex Agricultural School's environmental-science class.
On March 1, the environmental-science class from Essex Agricultural School (Essex, MA) paid a visit to the Woods Hole Field Center (WHFC) to learn more about the Stellwagen Bank mapping team, including Page Valentine, Sarah Fuller, and Kara Hass. Chris Polloni and Erika Hammar-Klose were present to answer questions about sea-floor-mapping applications. Amy Holt Cline and Charles Saulnier brought 12 students, who had created maps of marine regions.

Page Valentine fielded questions from the students and gave them an overview of the research. The students had the chance to give a quick summary of the products that they had created using the Marine GIS Library for Massachusetts Bay (Open-File Report 99-439) as a resource. The students used ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute) ArcView software to navigate through the CD and told a story through the map images. The mapping team was impressed with the products, and plans for continued collaboration are being made. The class also participated in the Massachusetts Maritime Academy (MMA) High School Environmental Symposium (see previous article).
