After leaving JOIDES Resolution, I knew I wanted to pull together a data visualization that not only documented the daily Sky/Cloud measurements, but also as a shout-out to the kindergarten teacher that turned her students into mini-scientists observing the world around them, and to the Second Mate from JR Expedition 390 who took the time to explain to the kids (and to me!) his daily weather observations and for responding to all the questions.

This post originally was supposed to be focused on a collection of profiles of women in ocean sciences available online. But in working to celebrate our successes, and keeping in mind this year’s theme for International Women’s Day 2023 of #EmbraceEquity, I couldn’t just celebrate the accomplishments – I had to include the challenges these amazing women have faced along the way and still face today.

An exciting addition this year is that Stitch Your Ocean Science 2023 has been endorsed as an Ocean Decade Activity by the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development! We hope this encourages even more international participation for our global ocean.
