Dr. Henderson (left) presented a research poster with Dr. Barrett (right) titled, "Assessing STEM content learning: using the Arctic’s changing climate to develop 21st century learners."  In addition, Dr. Barrett presented a research poster titled, "Characteristics of propagating Madden-Julian and Boreal Summer Intraseasonal Oscillations," which also featured work by current oceanography major MIDN 2/C Densmore.  Dr. Smith (not pictured) presented an oral presentation highlighting his work on the role of organic matter in flocculation in the Misa River in Senigallia, Italy. This work involved two former Midshipmen oceanography majors from the class of 2015, Michael Fuller and Kevin Lois.
