Howdy, thanks for dropping by.
October 11, 2018 – This week I’m in Lake Tahoe for the American Academy of Underwater Sciences Annual Symposium. About 140 participants from all around the world are gathering to share their scientific diving knowledge and expertise!
September 17, 2018 – Today is my first unofficial day in the CTEL Lab! I’m looking forward to exploring kelp forest ecology of the Oregon Coast for the next several years.
July 22, 2018 – Tomorrow I leave for the Canadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS) to participate in the joint Polar Knowledge, OceanWise, and MarineGEO #MarineGEOArctic 2018 campaign! We will conduct biodiversity collections, Reef Life Survey SCUBA surveys, and deploy Autonomous Reef Monitoring Structures (ARMS) for later collection. Follow updates from my Twitter account.
Every month I’ll post an exciting open-source paper related to marine ecology. I’ll also post a work of speculative fiction to keep the creative juices flowing….
And the paper and story for November 2018 are:
