This cruise is part of a 15-day training program designed to increase the number of early career scientists experienced in marine seismology.

A hands-on science communication workshop is part of this program. All participants will write a short blog post about their research. These posts will be shared on this blog during and after the cruise, along with daily scientific reports when we’re at sea.

Program participants include 19 early career scientists, two postdoc mentors, four research scientists, and one science writer.

We’ll gather in Newport, Oregon for a two-day pre-cruise workshop on September 24. Our research expedition begins on Tuesday, September 26 — please check back soon for updates on our work.
