I should have known

…that I would grow up to be a pseudo computer nerd doing stuff related to animals. (sarcasm…) I was recently reminded of the online game Neopets*. Anyone out there remember this game? Mom – do you remember me playing it? It was sort of like a computer based Tomogatchi and Pokemon hybrid. You had pets, […]

AFFOGATO – Day 14 – A Day in the Life

I haven’t posted in a week? Poor blogging, Selene! Ok as promised, I wanted to post about what our day-to-day life has been like out here. Amazingly, today is our last day! I am on shore right now, making small adjustments to glider that we will pick up at noon. The rest of the team […]

AFFOGATO – Day 7

Field updates – coming at you. It’s Day 7, and I’ve got the morning off from going out on the boat, so I figured I could do a little blog updating. Jay, Holger, and Danielle are out on the small boat today, and Dave sadly left us to go back to Oregon yesterday. Most important […]

AFFOGATO – Day 4

Day 4 already? How did that happen?? I’m happy to report ALL our instruments are now in the water and happily recording marine mammals in the Catalina Basin (lots I hope!). Day 1 we did some testing at SWFSC, and got everything prepped for our transit out to the basin. Testing went as planned, and […]

How low can you go?

Most of my time with bioacoustics, thus far, has been with playing sounds – my master’s work with an active acoustic tag – or with identifying odontocete, or toothed whale species, in glider data (typically known as high- or mid-frequency vocalizations). For my PhD, I’ll be expanding what I know about whale acoustics and looking […]

All is NOT calm

Well, this post is LOOONNGGG overdue. But that happens right? It’s still a story worth telling ­čÖé I haven’t posted in a while, so lets touch base on the last three months of my grad school life. Michelle┬ámentioned that many in our lab attended the Biennial Meeting┬áfor the Society for Marine Mammalogy. It was crazy, […]

Forward Progress

So….Guess what? I figured out my dissertation! Well, not really. Not the whole thing.┬áBut I finally feel like I have sort of the start of an idea of a plan. Yesterday I gave a talk at the Marine Mammal Institute Brownbag series at Hatfield Marine Science Center. I took this opportunity to try and sketch […]

Reporting for Duty

I’m going to take a page out of Danielle’s blog/book this week…and talk about thinking. About one year and 3 weeks ago, Danielle touched on the value of taking time to just think. Not day-dreaming just thinking about all of the Patagonia jackets I want to buy, but thinking about my project, my science, what….and […]

Busy times call for….

links to other blogs!! ┬áLike this one:┬áLADC-GEMM Lately I’ve been doing some “field work” although that is not nearly as glamorous as my labmates Michelle and Samara are doing right now. I am piloting a glider in the Gulf of Mexico for a monitoring project around the area of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. […]
