Lessons from the Labrador Sea

Physical oceanographer Amy Bower (right) recently led students from the Perkins School for the Blind on a tour of the research vessel Knorr. The tour was part of an ongoing relationship between Bower and thestudents; this month, while she is in the Labrador Sea off the coast of Greenland deploying a mooring equipped with instruments, Bower will communicate with them via a web portal, voice-to-voice communication, and audio postcards. Bower, honored as Massachusetts' blind employee of the year in 2003, strives to make science accessible for visually impaired individuals. She studies ocean currents at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
