Stony Brook University's Tropical Marine Ecology course (MAR 388) has begun! All of us (21 students, 1 graduate student, and 2 faculty) and our luggage arrived safely at the Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory last night. We left behind the snow in Long Island for the green-blue waters of the Caribbean which are literally a few steps from where we sleep. We started the class immediately after dinner with a lecture by Prof. Peterson. We've got 3 more lectures scheduled for today along with our first class snorkel. We'll try to have at least two blog posts each day that we're here so stay tuned for more updates…
