The externs are busy at work preparing for the NaGISA Spring 2014 Collection and Analysis. The collection is planned for April 29th at Henderson Beach State Park. Early in the morning, the NaGISA team will split up into dive groups and beach groups. The dive groups will head out on the dive boats while the beach groups will set up on the beach. After a few practice runs, the team will perform the official collection. The beach groups will also run an educational program for the local middle and elementary schools at the beach. The samples will sit overnight in the laboratory until analysis the following day.
