Early Career Pioneers in Ocean Science – TOS Awards Ceremony Recap
Watch the Awards Ceremony
The Virtual Awards Ceremony took place on Thursday, October 27th.
Sea-Bird Scientific had the pleasure of hosting a virtual Awards Ceremony in collaboration with one of our long-term partners, The Oceanography Society (TOS). The ceremony honored two of the recipients of the 2021 Early Career Awards as designated by TOS.
This event highlighted the ability for scientific societies and the private sector to come together to promote and highlight the science that is driving our understanding of key global questions, such as climate change, complexities in our oceanic environment, and international resource management. It also showcased the diversity in the type of research being done that is driving change across the globe.
Diving into the details
April Abbott set the stage in showcasing the complexity in generating a holistic view of oceanic conditions, utilizing a detailed analysis of her chemical oceanographic research, which focused on utilizing Neodynium to trace water mass circulation.
Understanding the broader impact
James Watson helps put research such as April’s into perspective on a global scale – bettering our understanding of the implications of our changing ocean climate. From phytoplankton dispersion, to the complexity and interconnectedness of our global food webs, James explains how we can better facilitate global oceanic resource management and allocation.
Thanks again to our gracious host, Dr. Erin Vera Satterthwaite for your time in being an engaging and lively host.
Thank you to all of those that attended!
