Before the TREET project brought the Inner Space Center and its telepresence enabled scientific research to new highs and lows, before better practices brought new evaluated methodology, before the culture of at-sea science began to craft a new image for itself, Chris German, PhD, and his team were already getting after it. What’s “it?” Read on. Continue reading The Final Piece – Looking Forward to the Future
So far in this organically growing series of exposés on the TREET project, I have covered two different perspectives, the early career scientist and the undergraduate researcher in training. I have now convinced two more invested souls to sit down with me and discuss their most fascinating theories and ideas. An expert scientist and an expert observer, who is also a scientist of the social kind. This piece is an observation on the observer. Continue reading Another Side of Science
The TREET program is in the thick of it. Transforming remotely conducted research one day at a time as they work in direct communication and interact with the E/V Nautilus. They are studying the Caribbean Sea’s most active submarine volcano, Kick ’em Jenny. Continue reading Which Button will you Push Today? How about Tomorrow?
The TREET Project is exploring remote human-robotic interactions.
First, what is TREET!? Continue reading Transforming Remotely Conducted Research
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has a world-class research and exploration vessel called the Okeanos Explorer. She’s a beautiful ship with some brand-new gear to send us high-def video and audio from the bottom of the ocean. Continue reading NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer Overview
It’s been a little over a week since the Nautilus has been searching the depths for the next big discovery. Not to downplay anything here – I mean, they have been at sea since early June you know. So far this summer they have been exploring the “Unknown America.” Continue reading E/V Nautilus, Back in the Game
Yesterday the ISC watchstander team took advantage of some E/V Nautilus transit time and ventured to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) to see the new National Science Foundation research vessel Sikuliaq. Continue reading Out of the Office: Exploring the R/V Sikuliaq
Welcome to the second installment of the Inner Space Center’s ‘Wreck-ollections’, wherein we take a closer look at some of the fascinating shipwrecks we’ve visited or re-discovered. This season has found us diving on a series of historical wrecks from WWII, and so we will go back to the beginning of the summer, to the wreck of U-boat 166. Continue reading Wreck-ollections: U-Boat 166
The ocean is full of history. There are shipwrecks and artifacts just waiting to be discovered!
The ocean is gigantic. It’s the biggest body of water on earth, but only 7% of it has been explored. Why do we explore the ocean?
