2019-Coastal Management Research

About the Project:

Student researchers will have two primary tasks: 1) survey beach users about their recreation behavior and attitudes towards shoreline management and collection of basic data related to shoreline conditions and beach attributes, and 2) organizing and analyzing spreadsheet data regarding local users' preferences toward coastal management policies. Field research--at local beaches--will be conducted several times a semester (a mix of weekdays and/or weekends). Other work will occur on campus.

The First-Year Research Associate Program at Eckerd College honors academically outstanding students with awards of up to $1,000. The program also provides the opportunity, during the freshman year, for the award winners to work closely with a sponsor (faculty or administrative personnel) on a project of mutual interest. Associates might assist with research for faculty publication or new courses, conduct scientific experiments, work with creative artists, or develop projects related to any phase of the academic, cultural, and social life of the college. Scholars are selected on the basis of achievement in high school and on the creativity and depth of responses to items on this application.​

Online submission due no later than February 1, 2019.
