Bailey's Bay, and Bailey's Bay Flats are both on the north west side of Bermuda. The Flats are often used by BBSR as a study area for the Coral Reef Ecology course - they are a very nice example of a patch reef, meaning that there are isolated sections of reef leading to nothing very quickly. Inside the bay, sheltered by several small islands, are sea grass meadows. These meadows are grazed by a variety of organisms, including Green Turtles. Experiments are set up in the meadows to analyse effects from different fertilizers, or to record the productivity of the grasses.
