We joined SLC students to spend the day together aboard Callista.


This was our fourth annual trip to the National Oceanographic Centre in Southampton where we spend time aboard

the Research Vessel Callista.

We participated in experiments conducted in Southampton Water including salinity, temperature and light penetration


Later we picked out crabs and other sealife from a trawled sample taken off the seabed before comparing sludge

samples around the Fawley Oil refinery area.

Lucky again with the weather, our knowledgeable instructors ensured it was a great experience for us all.
