LMU offers BIOL 398 Cape Cod Barrier Beach Ecology, a unique academic field experience where a maximum of 8 students will study the spring ecology of a classic Cape Cod barrier beach/salt marsh ecosystem. Nestled among towering sand dunes and adjacent to a 3,000 hectare salt marsh, students live amidst and study within the spring beach system from a recently renovated dune house field station. The course is intended to introduce students to the field methodology and logistics associated with an ongoing, long‐term coastal marine study. Similar to conditions on a research vessel, the course is intended to provide a remote, discreet, cooperative experience in actively recovering and analyzing barrier beach and salt marsh field data.
