I am going on a research cruise for the next two weeks. I'll be aboard the RV Big Boat**, and I have been told that there is WiFi aboard. If the internet is real, and reliable, I shall try to blog the cruise. We'll be working in the Gulf of Mexico, studying the deep water corals there. I'll try to post pix and all that kind of cool stuff, as well as what the day-to-day life aboard is like, since I don't know if my reader has ever been aboard a blue water research vessel.
This should be an interesting time, and I really hope for some good samples. Will I get them and have a job for the next year? Will they tell me anything interesting and new? Will I fall overboard while losing my lunch? These questions and more will be answered in the next episode of "Lab Boy on a Boat." Be sure to tune in!
*I think I have at least one reader.
**I'll be keeping things anonymous. Since this space is mine, I do not speak for my employer, the funding agency, the crew, the vessel, the vessel owners, nor anyone else. If I get seasick, I don't even speak for myself.
