As an experimental oceanographer I must have spent well over a year (in total) at sea doing research. My trips have taken me to the Arctic, the tropical Pacific (east and west), the North Atlantic, the North Pacific (many times), the Mediterranean, the North Sea, and many estuaries around the USA. I love it!
As a scientist, I take great pleasure in discovery. As an experimentalist, I also enjoy the challenge of making difficult measurements to advance the science.
