Congratulations Skylar!

Congratulations to Skylar (WHOI) on her first reproduction paper being accepted by Marine Biology! Skylar looked at the reproduction of hydrothermal vent limpets that colonized soon after an undersea eruption at the East Pacific Rise. Look out for the publication soon!

Bye bye Gustavus. Hello Juneau!

Early this morning I headed to the Gustavus airport, to be met by a thick fog that kept us grounded for 4 hours. 
The Gustavus airport, one of the cutest airports i've ever been in, with some of the friendliest staff. This morning as I was lugging my bags down towards the airport, the check in lady stopped her car and picked me up, took me back to my house to get the rest of my bags, and took me to the airport. She even let me do her drive around the airstrip - woo hoo! 
The smallest plane i've ever been on! 
...and I got to sit in the front seat! Bye bye Gustavus, I hope to see you again next year! 
Flying over the Icy Straight
And heading into Juneau. From a city of 300, to a city of over 40,000! 

This morning I left Gustavus and the Glacier Bay National Park project, and headed over to Juneau to begin the Alaskan Fjord Coral Reproduction project. Be sure to check out the updates on those pages - here!
