Virtually Intertidal: Remote Exploration of Rocky Shores
Using interactive media, this event takes students on a virtual field trip to a site of biodiversity interest on the north Antrim coast.
Here they will explore the physical environmental processes that structure the communities of intertidal organisms, vertical zonation due to desiccation, exposure and wave stress. Join our experts as they deploy a variety of innovative methods and artifacts used for monitoring in the marine environment.
This event is being hosted in conjunction with the Steinbeck Festival in Limavady, to celebrate the role that marine ecology played in influencing John Steinbeck’s writing through his work and personal relationship with scientist Ed Ricketts.
