Diving into the Gyre!

Today we plunged into the science of Gyres with models on the dock.  We looked at how plastic trash accumulated in whirlpools in our buckets with motor-powered currents and discussed how this might relate to the large gyre known as the Sargasso Sea.

Heading out on the boat, some of the divers tackled their confined water skills while others investigated underwater digital photography and navigation!
