In her comings and goings, the square-rigged SSV Oliver Hazard Perry will ply the same waters often. This expedition takes advantage of the established familiarity to document coastal change, using the process to teach Oliver Hazard Perry's trainee crew the importance of bay conservation and introducing them to the richness of Narragansett Bay. The documentation will coincide with Oliver Hazard Perry's mission to impart basic seamanship, which requires a thorough aptitude in the reading of charts and an understanding of the many facets of coastal waters.
To accomplish this mission, Oliver Hazard Perry will photo-document the coast line it visits, including photos from the deck, from shore excursions, and from a drone. This photos will mark changes in coastal flora and in coastal boundaries. As the project continues, we hope the data will suggest solutions to counter erosion.
