Catching that CO2 before the Sun Comes up!

-by Shiyu Rachel Wang

“Get out of the way!” Chuck shouted. The motor's sound trailed off, and we had to stop our boat in the middle of the creek to let the dolphins pass. “You know people pay hundreds of dollars in Savannah to watch the dolphins?” I pointed out the irony. “Yeah, they are cool, but not when we need to finish this CO2 sampling by sunrise.” Chuck grumbled. I looked at my watch, we just lost 5 minutes of sampling time.

Featured Student: MARIA LETOURNEAU

Maria on a cruise in the SAB

I grew up in South Portland, Maine, a small coastal northern New England town five minutes from the ocean. Although I always hated the smell of fish, got seasick on boats, and never liked to swim in the ocean (it was way too cold), I somehow fell in love with marine science. My first taste of oceanography was my high school marine biology class, after that I knew I wanted to study the ocean. For my bachelors degree I attended the University of Miami in Coral Gables Florida.
