SEA Alumni are Everywhere!

On a research vessel you are bound to get scientists, crew, engineers, and technicians from all over the world on a cruise.  There is this special subset of people who sometimes come out on our research vessels, SEA Alumni.  SEA, Sea Education Association, is a unique study abroad program operating since 1971 that combines oceanography and traditional tall ships sailing (think of square rig or pirate ships).  It is still rare to get more than one SEA alumnus on a single cruise.   Gareth and Peter, however, put together an impressive science party for this pteropod study.  We have not one…not two…not three, but FOUR SEA alumni on this cruise.   We comprise both the old and new alumni.  We represent the following classes Westward 28, Westward 178, and Corwith Cramer 223.

Once you've sailed with SEA you can never take the sea out of us. Katherine, Nick, and Tom all work for WHOI. Meghan works for SIO. The four of us share a very special bond allowing us to instantly trust each other's knowledge and capabilities both on deck and in the lab. For one we all know how to tie a bowline behind our back. Can you?

Thanks SEA for making us lifelong oceanographers and sailors. www.sea.edu
