This unit is restricted to students who have successfully completed the intermediate units of the majors in the BMarSc. The unit consists of a 1-semester long independent research project in Marine Science. It will involve the equivalent of 6 hours contact time per week (approximately 80 hours) planning, conducting, analysing and reporting on a marine research topic negotiated between the student and the supervising academic. Students who wish to enrol in this unit must contact the unit coordinator, Prof Gustaaf Hallegraeff, so that they can be matched with a project and supervisor, and are also advised to talk directly to potential supervisors.
