Totally forgot to post this…..our take on Men at Work’s “Land Down Under”, repurposed for the deep sea! Thanks for following along….I have more photos to post and a whoooole other cruise coming up in a few months, so stay tuned!
Video by Lisa Strong, singing done by me, Lisa, and Grieg. Guitar played by Young James, and ukelele by Trevor!
so the flotation on one of our elevators that we use to take shit to and from the seafloor totally imploded…..the floats are essentially glass balls.
fucking INSANE. i’ve got pictures, will be sure to post!
here are some shots of the lab spaces on the R/V Atlantis, along with some of the scientists! we don’t have a ton of space, but we use EVERY inch! my lab space is awesome, because we’re separate from the main lab and can have our own music blasting while we build geochemistry samplers and/or remove water samples after collection.
Ask a JASON Pilot!
ROV pilot Akel answers all your questions about the JASON ROV! Even who would win in a fight between JASON and the submersible Alvin!
What is an Elevator?
Learn about these workhorses of deep sea science that we use to get equipment and samples from the surface to the seafloor!
Everyone can be a part of our current expedition to the Juan de Fuca Ridge flank off the coast of Oregon and Washington! We’re broadcasting all our dives with the ROV JASON LIVE on the internet!! Through this website you can also ask questions, learn about our science team and the technology we’re utilizing, read blogs from our education team, and see what life on a research vessel is really like!!
When we’re not diving, the camera will be turned on the main lab where researchers are doing groundbreaking geochemical, geophysical, and microbiological research. Once we get our audio issue resolved, we’ll be narrating what’s going on during the dives live on-air.
Join us and watch deep sea science as it happens! We should be starting our second dive shortly.
So, what is a CORK anyways?
Check out this video to find out what makes up a CORK, and how it’s not just something you find in a bottle of champagne!
Return to Juan de Fuca……the purpose of our 2013 research cruise!
I’m out at sea aboard the R/V Atlantis with the ROV JASON…learn more about why we’re here doing this research in this video courtesy of Lisa Strong and others! We’re in the Pacific visiting our long-term subseafloor observatories to help us learn more about the workings of how fluid moves inside the ocean crust!!
lots of stuff pending…2, potentially 3 different cruises this summer/fall, a talk at WHOI, and more blatherings from this postdoc.
