My favorite part of the job!

There is something to be said about going to sea.  It's a necessary part of life for most (if not all) marine scientists.  Time to remind ourselves why we love science, the ocean, and our careers.  I am lucky enough to go to sea at least once a year for several weeks to collect data for my doctoral thesis.....however this cruise is a bit different!
