F15 offshore near Pelee Island

NiagaraOffshore_8571smThe Williams-Mystic F15 class is midway through their voyage aboard the SSV Niagara, led by the captain and crew and Professors Rich King and Mike Nishizaki and TA Hannah Whalen.   This morning they finished their second science Super Station, collecting water, sediment, and two kinds of mussels from the bottom: zebra and quagga mussels, both invasive species from Europe.

Now they are heading east toward Buffalo, NY.  To continue tracking their progress, go to http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:439518/mmsi:367189310/vessel:NIAGARA.
