It has now come to our attention that EVERY cruise needs a high seas adventure cartoonist. Lucy Bellwood’s comic on her three weeks at sea with the Schmidt Ocean Institute is just perfection. As the artist-at-residence on the R/V Falkor she describes the ship, the science and the techs/technology/scientists behind the science. And you will meet the Queen of the Multibeam.
Kim is a Senior Oceanographer at Sea-Bird Scientific. She received her Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography from the University of Washington in 2010. Her goal in life is to throw expensive s**t in the ocean. When not at sea, she has used observations from moored, satellite and land-based instruments to understand the pathways that wind and tidal energy take from large (internal tides) to small scales (turbulence). Her current mission is to make your oceanographic data be the best data it can be.
