All in the Family

Katie Eident (background) returned to Woods Hole recently on the R/V Atlantis after eight months aboard the ship. Her parents, Donna and William, were at the WHOI dock to greet her. Going to sea on WHOI research vessels runs in the Eident family: Her father served as chief engineer aboard Oceanus, brother Bill was a junior engineer on Oceanus and deckhand on Knorr, brother Dan was a deckhand on Atlantis, and Katie served as a mess attendant aboard all three ships. During her time on Atlantis, she also blogged for Scientific American and contributed to Oceanus magazine. Katie now plans to spend some time on land pursuing her other love: writing.
