12-week paid summer internship in biological oceanography (Puget Sound, WA)

Dr. Danny Grunbaum and Dr. Julie Kiester have funding to support a 12-week paid summer intern in biological oceanography on a project studying how zooplankton swimming behaviors are affected by hypoxia and acidification in Puget Sound. We are using three approaches to study distributions and movements of zooplankton: 1) a video system that is deployed in situ on a vertically profiling ORCA mooring in Hood Canal, 2) cameras deployed on Lagrangian drifters on research cruises, and 3) zooplankton net tows to ground-truth the camera data.

[scholarship]: American Salvage Association/North American Marine Environment Protection Assoc. Call for Papers

It’s that time of year again when the American Salvage Association (ASA) and the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA) join forces to host its Annual Call for Papers – Marine Sciences Competition. Running for its 7th consecutive year, the program opens the door for high school and college undergraduate students to demonstrate their passion in the Marine Sciences by participating in the program either individually or as a team. The initiative is intended to highlight the importance of preserving the marine environment through the use of sound environmental practices, raise awareness of the art and science of marine salvage and engineering, and to promote careers within the greater maritime industry. Each paper is reviewed by a technical committee of marine industry experts and is evaluated on a wide range of criteria including originality, data collection, supporting evidence, and tangibility within the real-world environment.
