Hello from land! I hope you are all reunited with your loved ones! I know the scientists on this trip will probably never brag about what they accomplished here. So, let me unashamedly do it for them. Incredible, gutsy, awesome, I can't say enough about how I feel about these individuals both professionally and personally. I put together this video so that you might get a feeling for what their work on the ship looks and sounds like. Thank you for letting me share in the lives of those you hold dear. Scientists at sea are a daring bunch!

I love surprises, they give us the opportunity to dive into the unknown with unquenchable curiosity. I have never been at sea, for more than a day, and I certainly have never seen a floating lab at work. The mission is the North Atlantic Aerosols and Marine Ecosystems Study (NAAMES). This blog is not about the science as much as the people behind it. I will leave the science discoveries to the 32 bright minds onboard. So how does a floating lab work? Let's figure it out together.
