22 July 22 – 23 August 2019 – New PhD student Duncan Wheeler attended the Estuarine and Coastal Fluid Dynamics course this summer at UW’s Friday Harbor Laboratories. This 5-week intensive course is led by Dr. Parker MacCready (UW) and Dr. Rocky Geyer (WHOI) and is a crash course in estuarine and coastal dynamics including not only lectures but also hands-on field work and group projects. Sarah was fortunate to be invited as a guest lecturer during the last week of the course (19-23 August). She presented lectures on surfzone dynamics and the interaction of waves within estuaries and with estuarine outflows. She lucked out attending the last week as she got to see the impressive final student presentations – full field experiments and analysis in 5 weeks!!
