Measuring limpets

Limpet Pools

Students in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program spent 12 days exploring a remote Panamanian island in January 2011. As part of their coursework, (from left) Li Ling Hamady, Liz Drenkard, and Whitney Bernstein recorded the location of limpets (marine snails) to learn how and why the snails live in a habitat that alternates between wet and dry as part of a lesson on intertidal zonation. WHOI biologists and instructors Ann Tarrant and Jesús Pineda accompanied the students during their stay at the Liquid Jungle Lab on Isla Canales in the Pacific. They plan to offer the course again in January 2013. (Photo by Ann Tarrant, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
