In just one week Cleo and Kelsey will be boarding the R/V Atlantis for a month in the North Atlantic, coinciding with the spring phytoplankton bloom. Cleo will be operating the PTR-MS again, measuring rates of volatile organic carbon production. This will be Kelsey’s first research cruise. She will be providing technical support to several other research groups ~ an excellent opportunity for her to interact with other research scientists, particularly those interested in the dynamics of higher trophic levels, because those grazers are of special interest to her. NASA has a new video showing the view from the aircraft side of NAAMES.
Eric presenting his data!
Grad students Eric and Kelsey just returned from the Ocean Science meeting held in New Orleans. They presented posters on their work, attended dozens of talks, participated in scientific socials, toured research vessels, ate heartily, and even performed on-stage (Kelsey on the trombone, below). These two took full advantage of this scientific conference by being prepared and enthusiastic young scientists.
Thanks to my amazing nephew, Nick Halsey, I have published this website using WordPress and Nick’s tutorials available at Annenbergdl.org. I can’t wait to see where the multiple talents of this young man take him.
