JP student Armstrong cruise

Students at Sea

Graduate students in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program went on the first orientation cruise aboard the research vessel Neil Armstrong in September 2017, led by WHOI physical oceanographer Glen Gawarkiewicz. For 30 hours, they lived, ate, slept, and worked on the ship. For many, it was their first time at sea. The students got firsthand experience with some of the basic tools of oceanographic research, including this CTD sampling rosette. Graduate students Jing He (left, in purple) and Ellen Lalk (right, in black) prepare water samples collected with the CTD for later analysis and flush the instrument’s sensors with deionized water to clean them.
