Researchers’ experiences at sea

CURRENTS: A STUDENT BLOG NAVIGATING SOCIETY & SEA

SMEA graduate students Kaitlin Lebon and Katie Keil each contributed pieces to a series for the student blog Currents illustrating researchers’ experiences at sea. Lebon’s piece takes an inside look at field science in the Arctic through Kylie Welch— a Faculty Research Assistant with the Goñi Lab at Oregon State University. Keil’s piece describes her own experiences on the University of Washington’s R/V Clifford A Barnes to collect water chemistry parameters, various plankton samples, and krill. Read both Lebon’s post Field Science in the Arctic: An Inside Look and Keil’s post Replacing Leisure with Research: My First Cruise, as well as the many other student written blog pieces on Currents.
