Texas A&M University in Galaxidi - 1

Prof. Bernd Würsig and wife Melany are with us in Galaxidi, getting ready for a Marine Biology Course to be held in the Gulf of Corinth over the next two weeks. Ten students from Texas A&M University will join us at our field station to learn about the ecology and conservation of Mediterranean marine fauna, with emphasis on dolphins.

Bernd (see his Wikipedia profile HERE and his CV HERE) has published about 150 peer-reviewed articles, including those that first described individual photo-identification of dolphins by dorsal fin markings, theodolite tracking, and the development of a bubble curtain system to mitigate underwater industrial noise.
