They will attend a five-day immersion program in marine and environmental science, June 10 to 15, at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography.

The program, entitled Coastal Imacts: Marine and Environmental Science for Journalists, gives reporters and editors basic science plus field and lab experience with scientists and graduate students. It also includes a public lecture and debate series that this year will focus on climate change.

The Metcalf Institute for Marine and Environmental Reporting, named for late Providence Journal publisher Michael P. Metcalf, was established in 1997 with funding from Belo Corp., The Providence Journal Foundation, The Washington Post’s Philip L. Graham Fund, and the Telaka Foundation.
