I've been working full time at Polar Science (at the Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington) for two and a half years, and I love it!  I've been studying the Arctic Ocean here while I attend classes at UW working toward a master's degree in Applied Physics. This trip into the Chukchi Borderland will be my first venture into the field.  While on board I'll be working with the CTD group, learning how to take salinity, temperature, and depth measurements.
