Your donation will contribute to necessary laboratory chemicals to help students study and analyze samples ranging from fish, coastal survey samples, and water samples here from the Cape Fear River and our coastline!
Your donation will provide equipment for our microscopic Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, which will allow students to identify the type of plastics found in their samples to better understand how different plastics impact the environment.
Your donation will provide students with spectrogram software to analyze marine acoustics, or listen to the natural sounds captured of the marine environment to understand how human impact changes the sounds of our seascapes
Your contribution will help provide a hydrophone system for student research in marine acoustics and capturing sound in our coastal ecosystems. This sound system will help us better understand how human impact changes sound in the ocean and studies how animals may vocalized in the marine environment!
This will directly fund ship time necessary to survey offshore locations for visual and audio data. Ship time and marine acoustics are the most expensive portions of our work, but are just as critical as any to give students hands on experience in research in the field!
