Scientist in Training

February 18, 2018

The Semester at WHOI program gives juniors and seniors interested in science, math, and engineering the opportunity to come to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to do their own ocean-related research project. Tufts math major Nathaniel Cresswell-Clay recently participated in the program. He worked with physical oceanographer and climate scientist Caroline Ummenhofer to study how air-sea interactions in the southern Indian Ocean affect winter rainfall in southwest Australia. Here, Cresswell-Clay and Ummenhofer talk about his results and plan what diagrams to use in his final report and presentation. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
