Several Bermudian students spent the summer learning about the many facets of oceanography.

The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) Explorers' Series, Water Moves, started two weeks ago and continues until March 9.

As part of the education programme BIOS featured its local BioNauts, middle school students who take part in research in and around Bermuda.

The programme is designed to broaden Bermudian students' knowledge of marine and atmospheric sciences and to introduce them to daily operations of a research station

The BioNauts videoed one of their scientific cruises cruise aboard the MV HSBC Atlantic Explorer.

Topics covered include ocean circulation and currents, the composition of seawater and nutrient cycling, the relationship between marine organisms and the ocean environment, and how humans are changing the ocean.
