From one Summer Student Fellow to another

Summer Student Fellow (SSF) Gar Secrist (left), an ecological biologist, examines tubeworms or Tevnia jerichonana alongside WHOI biologist Lauren Mullineaux, who was also an SSF as an undergraduate. Her laboratory collected many biological samples from P-Vent on the East Pacific Rise, and Secrist’s task was to study and count the variety of creatures through a microscope. With this data, they hoped to gain a better understanding about the recolonization of hydrothermal vent populations after volcanic eruptions.
