Check out NOAA’s podcast about the Okeanos Explorer which just finished up its journey across thousands of miles across the Pacific Ocean. Courtney talked a little about this cruise on her Oct. 28 post, but since this is such a hot topic of discussion, wanted to keep you updated on what happened and what is in the works.

Come back next week as we unveil our “Visiting Scientist/Blogger Series.”  Topics to be discussed will span from sea mounts to plankton to plastics.  Stay tuned!
