Special Edition 14.2 | AGU: Oceans and Outreach, Part 2
More of Ryan bumming around a professional meeting, microphone in hand.
00:00:00 - First up is Stacey Felgate (@StaceyFelgate) and Kim Gottschalk (@Kim_Gottschalk). Stacey tells us a little bit about her work on blue carbon storage in salt marshes. Next, Kim tells us about her project investigating the source of Antarctic bottom water with GO-SHIP. They both also have a lot of recommendations for how to get involved in research as an undergrad, which you can learn about with these links:
- Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
- NSF's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
- NSF's Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation
- The Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS)
- Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS)
00:23:04 - We end our AGU coverage shooting the breeze with our old friend Miles Traer (@Geo_Miles), who was also working the meeting from multiple angles and drawing cartoons the whole while. Per usual, the conversation strays from geoscience to pop culture asking the big questions like, "Could the Death Star really blow up a planet?" (Answer) and "Is Independence Day actually a good movie?" (Answer). At some point, Miles may even talk about the actual research he's been up to.
01:09:40 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like conferences, neither have enough coffee to go around. This week we're thanking Moe S. for his continued patronage and recent donation. Moe's reminds us that it's never too late to get an education and we thank him for being a loyal listener all these years. All the feels.
Thanks for listening and be sure to check out the Brachiolope Media Network for more great science podcasts!
