Orianna DeMasi's study described observed tidal features on the portion of the New England shelf south of Martha' Vineyard.
2006 Summer Student FellowsCara Hotchkin

2006 Hollings Fellows Summer InternshipsCharles E. White, II
Charlies White analyzed data from simultaneously tagged long-finned pilot whales to quantify how these animals use the sonic environment to coordinate group behaviors.
Deborah Osborn's work consisted of using molecular techniques to identify the species of Pseudo-nitzschia in the GOM and determine whether molecular probes developed on the West Coast could be used in the Gulf of Maine.
