GOALS
 
What is SeaTalk? 
- A series of open group meetings, held once per quarter, to build community among those going in the field/to sea, to get us talking about the tricky issues we can face in isolated places, and to brainstorm and learn from each other about skills in dealing with them.

Who can come?  - Anyone. Students, postdocs, researchers, professors, technicians, volunteers, support staff, crew - everyone is welcome.  While our discussions may have a marine slant, all field-goers are invited, as the experiences we share are common whether on ships, in camps, or in other field research environments. 
Meetings will be announced via APL and Oceanography email lists, and via the SeaTalk Emailing list (to join, go here).

What do we discuss?  - Whatever we as a community want to discuss! - Let us know your ideas via FEEDBACK options below.

FEEDBACK

WE WANT YOUR FEEDBACK!

EMAILING LIST

 Until someone suggests something better, let's trial a SeaTalk emailing list for discussions relevant to fieldwork.  All meetings will also be advertised to this SeaTalk emailing list, so if you are not on the standard APL and Oceanography mailing lists, join this to get automatic announcements of meetings. ** To join, go here **
