USC WIES REP
Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies’
Research Exposure Program
The ocean has a profound influence on our daily lives, from providing seafood and recreational spaces, to regulating weather patterns and buffering the effects of climate change. But how does the ocean change over time and respond to natural or human-induced disturbance events? How are ocean dynamics, in turn, impacting the natural resources that we rely on?
Join the USC Wrigley Institute to explore ocean dynamics through hands-on research training in the field, and contribute to an ongoing oceanographic research program (the USC WIES San Pedro Ocean Time-series).
Students will participate in a research expedition to collect environmental data using state-of-the-art oceanographic equipment, including seawater samples that will be further analyzed during a 5 day stay at the Wrigley Marine Science Center on Catalina Island.
This 5-day WIES Research Exposure Program (REP) will include:
Cost: $550 (includes travel from/to USC UPC, housing, meals, activities and seminars). Some funding opportunities may be available for students who display a strong desire to participate in this program and require financial assistance. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Space is limited to the first 16 students who register. Register TODAY! Open to undergraduates from ALL MAJORS.

Food Revolution, USC Dornsife News
Students spend Spring break at the USC Wrigley Marine Science Center on Catalina Island studying the science of sustainable food. After lessons on aquaculture and aquaponics, they get their hands dirty creating compost in an edible garden.
