While the Spring Collection and Analysis were planned to be on April 18th and 19th, due to inclement weather they were pushed back a week until April 25th and 26th. The beach collection was successful, gathering all seven quadrats' data without incident, while the one meter dive was collecting offshore. The water conditions for the divers were not favorable, with poor visibility and rough waters. The one and twenty meter dives were completed successfully despite this. All seven beach quadrats were successfully analyzed, along with the one and twenty meter dive depths with no complications. Along with Collection and Analysis, new externs were selected out of a large pool of well qualified candidates. The 2019-2020 externs are David Ott and Clara Beth LaFollette, as head externs; Emma Wagner as Head Dive Coordinator; Caroline Swanick as Assistant Dive Coordinator; David Dye as Head of Analysis; DJ Tomassetti as Head of Collection; and Katherine Veth as Head of Training. We thank everyone for applying and are excited for a new NaGISA year!
