Filming in the intertidal

Concept maps are a visual way to present information about a variety of topics, scientific and otherwise. They are basically an online flow chart that present information in an interactive and engaging way. Fellow blogger Val wrote about grad student efforts to build our own concept maps with the help of the Center for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence. You can check out some public concept maps here.

As part of our grad student concept mapping efforts, I’ve been filming student research to generate video clips to include in our concept maps. Two weeks ago we ventured into the intertidal for some filming in the field. In the coming weeks I’ll be sharing videos highlighting grad student research at NU’s Marine Science Center, but for now, you can watch Val demonstrate intertidal surveys:

And here’s Kate setting up an experimental cage in the field:
