Globe-Trotting NMC Students Study Coral Reefs in Indonesia
This exotic destination now owes some of its beauty to a pack of globe-trotting students from Northern Michigan.
The team — from Northwestern Michigan College — traveled to Indonesia to conduct a survey of a system of coral reefs.
They used aerial imagery, water quality data and even went beneath the waves off Bunaken Island, all as part of a capstone course for marine technology majors.
We’re told a study combining all of those types of data is relatively unique — pretty neat!
