Blue skies and cloud cover at sea – via quilt
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.

Navigating the challenge of COVID and cruises
All of our personal and professional lives were impacted from the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak in early 2020. The schedule of ocean expeditions was hit especially hard, and field-based ocean research continues to work through the ongoing challenges of coronavirus.

Knowledge about oceans on other worlds starts with our own
the possibility of finding life in the universe has increased thanks to the ocean analog from our own planet. Samples from Expedition 390, which are collected from aa subsurface environment where basement is in contact with water, will advance our scientific knowledge and may help guide the direction for future astrobiology research as we continue to search for life in Earth’s deep ocean system and on other worlds.

Voicemails from the JR – what would we say?
This project has not only been a fun way for me to document our expedition, but it also records the voices of ship participants and their actual feelings at the moment – the excitement, the frustration, the sadness.. all of it authentic and in their own voice.

The missions of H.M.S. Challenger and JOIDES Resolution – a comparison of ocean exploration then and now
This year marks the 150th anniversary of the departure of the first ocean research expedition, H.M.S. Challenger. This year is when I am departing on JOIDES Resolution. I thought it would be interesting with Challenger’s anniversary to take a moment and reflect upon the mission of each research vessel to see how their missions are different between the two ships and over time.

My journey to becoming an Outreach Officer on the JOIDES Resolution
I’ve been asked by several colleagues what exactly that means to be an Outreach Officer on a research vessel and how you become one to begin with – this post is a write up that details some of this information.
