I'm Outta Here

Will be gone to the Canary Islands for a conference until the 15th to give my spiel. You will be in the very capable and ‘hand’some hands of Peter. Enjoy and use the thread to post comments on anything you want (as long it is deep sea related!).

Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://deepseanews.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.

  1. Wish you were webcasting…

    Don’t miss Bellwood’s presentation on fish dispersal. I need someone to take notes for me ;).

  2. I like how you used the word Spiel because of it’s meaning to my name. I think Spiel is german for story or tale from what I remember. Spieler means the teller of tales.Anyway, I hope you have a good time on the Canary Islands, I wish I could leave New England for once in my life, let alone go to the Canary Islands.
