One of my favorite aspects of oceanography is its collaborative nature. Most projects are collaborations between multiple science groups—often located at different institutions and occasionally on different sides of the globe. A great collaborator can teach you about their field of research, provide an independent view of your own data, and help generate novel models and hypotheses.  MORE >>

Thanks to all the educators who participated in our ROLE Model Webinar. I really enjoyed interacting in “virtual space” with all of you, and discussing my most recent research cruise during the month of July 2010 to the Juan de Fuca hydrothermal vent field off the coast of Oregon state. It is really refreshing for me as a scientist to talk to people who are so excited about deep sea topics – it truly helps reinvigorate my own passions and ideas for my work, as well as learn more about how you and your students could best utilize this information in educational settings. Thanks for sending in such though-provoking questions on the pre-webinar survey as well. I tried to answer some of them below, and have provided reference links at the end of this post to reputable scientist-vetted sites for others.  MORE >>
