Come learn about scientific expeditions in the Antarctica with Joee Patterson, who has been a Marine Technician on nine expeditions. The Zoom talk will be on Wednesday, January 20, 6:30 p.m. Joee will share stories of life on an icebreaker, a sampling of the scientific expeditions that she has facilitated, and of course, close encounters with the wildlife. This lecture will give a brief overview of Marine Operations for the US Antarctic Program, and a discussion of the science conducted on these missions (from the perspective of a layperson) combined with personal stories and observations.
