The Coho Salmon Field Studies program is a 9-week project-based course and internship experience. In the summer of 2012, ten incoming and current SWOCC students are joining an interdisciplinary research team with expertise in biology, engineering, computer science, and social sciences. Led by faculty and staff from the Coos Watershed Association, SWOCC, and OSU, students design and deploy a network using mobile communications technology to track coho salmon during their migratory life cycles. Students attend a weekly seminar, “Ecology and Communications Technology,” and intern full-time at the Coos Watershed Association.
