Nicole’15 shared her work creating computer programs to  analyze diving data in her poster, “Automating the Analysis of Cassin’s Auklet Diving Patterns Using Time-Depth Recorders and Python Programming.” Ramon’15 presented his poster on the study he carried out at Sea Ranch this summer, “The Bigger the Beak, The Faster You Seek: Foraging Time and Offspring Provisioning Among Pelagic Cormorants.”  Alumna Sophie’14 returned to present her findings on the expansion of Common Murres on Gualala Point Island in her poster, “Common Murres, Cormorants, and Citizen Science; Sharing Space on Gualala Point Island.”
