Hi! My name is Dr. Amy Bower. Welcome to my web page for students!

I am an oceanographer. “What is an oceanographer?” you ask.  An oceanographer is a scientist who studies the ocean to find out everything about it-- the water itself and the plants and animals that live there.

I decided to become an oceanographer because I love science, especially science about our home, Planet Earth. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve wondered how the Earth works. At first I was curious about the weather—I tried to guess if the next snow storm would be bad enough to close school the next day! Later I found out that the oceans have their own weather—currents of water that flow from one place to another like the wind and large swirls of water that are like storms in the ocean. I loved the idea of going out to sea as an explorer, so I decided to be an oceanographer.

Would you like to learn more about my life as an oceanographer? Join me on an exciting expedition to the North Atlantic Ocean as I set out in search of some special currents near Greenland. As you explore this web page, you will also find out what it’s like to be a scientist who is legally blind. Check out all the cool technology I use to help me do my work.
