Audio Slideshow on My Thesis Research in Oman

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

Sitting on some travertine, Samail Ophiolite, Oman, January 2009.

A little over a year ago, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution’s Oceanus Magazine put together a wonderful audio slideshow on my thesis research in Oman. Since I just presented some of the results of this research at AGU, I thought this would be a good time to post a link to the slideshow. Be sure to check out the other Oceanus audio slideshows here. There is so much great research happening at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution! These slideshows are designed for a general audience, so I explain my research in fairly simple terms. One of the challenges of recording the audio for this slideshow was avoiding technical language. They made me keep re-recording the audio until I was able to explain my research with as little jargon as possible! Also, I apologize for my overuse of the word “fascinating.” I just find my research so- well- fascinating!
