You know you're a true sailor when you spend a field season in the Southern Ocean! ⚓️⛴🌊 . The Southern Ocean is also one of least-studied areas of the world’s ocean basins. Few ships travel in this area, and the area is notoriously stormy in winter. Thus most shipboard studies have been conducted during the spring and summer. This means there are large geographical and seasonal gaps in the field data from this region. The Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling - uses a network of robotic floats carrying chemical sensors to fill in some of the data gaps. Recently, oceanographers published research using this data that suggests they need to revise global climate models. 🌊💦💙 In the image, a wave breaks into the Baltic Room — which provides access to launch instruments — aboard the R/V Nathaniel B.

It’s been about a week since all the staff made their way home, and we’ve been taking a little break from posting to decompress and get back into the swing of real life after a summer of fieldwork. It’s amazing how quickly you get used to the chaos of the field, and how long it takes for you to settle back into normal life when you get home! Now our suitcases are unpacked, our tans are beginning to fade, and the pangs of homesickness for Italy are disappearing we’ll be getting back to regularly scheduled programming, so keep an eye out, and thanks for bearing with us!! . . . . #italy #travel #tourist #homesick #traveller #archaeology #archaeologist #fieldwork #fieldseason #digseason #archaeological #summer #summerabroad #summerseason #archaeologyiscool #archaeologyisfun #studyabroad #flying #homewardbound #home #worldtraveller #traveler #worldtraveler

The Pinto Plesiosaur had been wrangled! Thank you Dr. Robin O'Keef and the Marshall University Crew, The RIP crew, Lane Carroll, Marlene Waterland, and the BLM for making this dig possible! #cartercountymuseum #plesiosaur #paleo #fieldwork #fieldseason
#Gobi2018 . All we have to do is load 5 trucks, go west, south, cross the dune field, enjoy the rain, further south, fix the truck that broke down (again), and after 11 hrs on the road we are... Half way. #explorer #further #NatGeo #mongolia #unibo #arvajheer #sciencetelling #dinosaurs #fieldseason #fieldworks @bapufilm @insidenatgeo @jerricantelli @zoofactory @chisadino
I came in to work today to find this on my desk. Let's just say I appreciate it a little TOO much. #werebasicallychildren #i ❤️puns #i ❤️unicorns #rainbow 🌈 #cupcakecereal #fieldseason #fieldecology
Wow bagus! Had the best time at @noerlen learning about the making of Markisa syrup and tasting delicious Sumatera coffees. Everyone was so kind and wonderful and everything tasted amazing!! Definitely stopping by during my next trip to Medan and so should you!! Oh and thanks for the ride, Asmara!!
I am SO glad this field season is over, but I love these people an incredible amount. This summer has probably been the toughest of my life and I am so thankful for all of the love and support I have received, not only from this lovely crew but from the rest of my friends and family too. A special thanks to @ohmygoshgarian @mariaacat @immerzs , @but_jenny and Seth Harris for helping me throughout this summer. I truly could not have done it without you guys!

An iteal day. Caught some birds, built a raft, had a blast! Thanks to @spaulds698 for the pics. #duckbanding #waterfowlecology #waterfowl #duckhunting #wildlife #ducks #fieldwork #fieldseason
Kicking off this season inspired, full of love, and ready for our most exciting year yet! Can’t wait to show you what we have in store! 💖 . . . . . . #gvworld #gvhsworld #gvworldguard #goldenvalleyhighschool #gvbaddies #lasbaddiesdegv #goldenvalleyworld #gvhsworldguard #twirlonthemhaters #fieldseason #marchingseason #bulldogbrigade #bulldogstrong
I don’t live out of my van, but it looks like I do by the end of my #fieldseason . 🙊 Rolling out and on to my next #ecologistadventure on the Olympic Peninsula with @validian1 ! 🚐🌊🏔
I leave tomorrow for my last survey of the season! #oneoftheseshouldwork #fieldseason #pukey #bonine #seaband #dramamine #nomorepatches #outtosea
This basically captures why I'm a field ecologist. I need to get outside, drink coffee in the dark, marvel at sunrise, spy on birds perched on fence posts, say good day to my plant family, and of course enjoy the smell the desert makes as the last bit of moisture burns off first thing in the morning. Have a great Friday! #fieldseason #fieldecology #plantnerd #actionpacker #sunrise #greatbasin #getoutside #haze #coffeeislife #tgif
Es geht endlich wieder los! Nächste Woche starten wir im Topspiel gegen die TG Worms (letztjahres 2ter) in die neue Saison.

Finally found my first King’s 8th button in 5 years of working at Michilimackinac. Not the shiniest we’ve ever found, but it’s a beauty! The King’s 8th regiment afoot is attributed to the two year demolition of the fort and relocation process to Mackinac Island from 1779-1781. #michilimackinac #archaeology #thisismackinac #fieldseason #buttonbutton

I knew gadwall were wont to nest under shrubs, but I didn't know that put them at such a high risk for cactus impalement! Luckily we were able to rid this lady of her injury and get her back to her brood with some new bling. #northparkducks #cactusgadwall #gadwall #wildlife #fieldwork #ecology #fieldseason #duckbanding #waterfowlecology #waterfowl #waterfowlbanding

🌽 This week we are going to talk about transgenics. This topic is a little too big for one post, so stay tuned to see them all! 🌽 — What are transgenic plants? Let’s break down the word: the prefix “trans-“ means “across” and “-genic” means of, or pertaining to genes. So a “transgenic plant” is one that contains genes from across species (two different species) 🐥🐭🐰. — A good example of transgenic organisms utilized by millions of Americans today is insulin producing bacteria and yeast; these guys have had the human insulin producing gene inserted into their DNA to make insulin in large enough quantities to support those who need it 👩🏽‍🔬👨🏼‍🔬 (woah, pretty neat! Want to learn more go here: nih.gov/recombinantdna) — In our research, we utilize transgenic plants to study the expression of various genes in tissues throughout the plant. The gene that has been introduced into these select plants is originally from jellyfish 😱🦑. We take a lot of steps to both protect these assets and comply with @usda APHIS rules and regulations regarding these plants (we will go into more detail in a later post!). — One of the things we do to identify the transgenic plants in a row is mark about an inch of the leaf and spray a herbicide. If the plant leaf dies, the trans-gene is not present. If the plant leaf stays green then the trans-gene is present. This is an easy, visual way to find the plants we need. — ✨Transgenic plants are extremely important to our research, and we hope this week to show our followers how we use them and that, in the end, they aren’t all that scary ✨. — Please DM us if you have any questions! — #transgenic #maize #research #jellyfish #insulin #summer #fieldseason #aphis #themoreyouknow
Our first week and a half of band camp has come to an end. HUGE thanks to those who supported us at our car wash yesterday. We would not be able to provide as good of an experience without our community💙 We are going into week two already knowing all of our movement 1 drill, way to push everyone! Please swing by Thursday evening for our Friends and Family Night if you have the evening free. We are so stoked to see what everyone is working on for this year! #moreinfothisweek #bandcamp #summerheat #zerodaysbelow100 #marchingband #colorguard #fieldseason #csbc #scsboa
Dear #archaeology gods, if you could see fit to grant me one or two more projects for the #fieldseason I would be very grateful, as would my wallet. #crmarch #renolife
After a 22 hour day I think serving "breakfast" (3pm) is a perfectly good excuse to make some more omelettes. The first one I fried mushrooms and ham in a harissa olive oil and filled with a mixture of organic cheeses. Today's were filled with feta cheese and kale and ham I sauteed in roasted sesame oil. Real proud cause all the onions, tomatoes, and kale came directly from our garden and my tech gave a multitude of compliments including it's the best thing she's ever put in her mouth... #duckeggs #organic #nofilter #phd #fieldwork #fieldseason #omelettes #breakfast #brunch
This is the FPI team during an evening off of fieldwork. We had a talent show and it was amazing! #fieldwork #tryfpi I’m nostalgic already <3 . . . . . . . . #trabajodecampo #biologia #biology #primatology #cicra #fieldseason #madrededios #peru #amazonrainforest #amazonia
Today, it was smoky. It was also hot. I was definitely running slow. But the #fieldseason is ticking away, and you only live once. #archaeology #crmarch #archaeologytough

From my husband and his partner, feel free to #share ! 💪🏼 #glaciernationalpark #ecology #montanamoment #montanawildlife #406 #recycle #eco #missoula #wildlifeenthusiast @janegoodallinst #wildlife_seekers @dstahler #fieldseason @natgeowild #nature #outdoorslife #nationalparks @yellowstone_cougar_project @erin.stahler @marcelhuijser @nature_org @wolftracker @sinopah_wildlife @leonardodicaprio #wildlifebiologist #yellowstoneforever Greetings fellow wildlifers. As the end of summer races towards us, some folks will be wondering what to do with the gear left over from the field season. Or perhaps someone in your department retired, or a program changed directions, and there is equipment no longer being used. Conversely, maybe you're starting a new winter project, or are a new graduate student, and you could use that extra camera or data logger to make your project just that much more successful. As biologists who have been on both sides of the gear situation, we recognized that there is no centralized way to put those who have extra gear in contact with those in need. So we created one - and we call it The Shed. http://www.sinopahwildlife.com/the-shed-home The Shed is free for anyone to use for posting or searching for gear. We don't ask for any personal information, although for security reasons users need to register for a free account. Don't worry, though, you won't be signed up for any email lists or advertisements. Ever. All we ask is that the site be used as it was intended: a tool to help those people trying to help conserve wildlife. As budgets continue to shrink and the challenges to conservation seem only to multiply, we're all trying to do more with less. By working together and putting our resources to the best possible use, we can advance conservation while reducing waste and saving money. So please spread the word to your collaborators, former students, or anyone who may contribute to, or benefit from, the site. For more information, please visit the About page. And as this is an evolving effort, we also welcome feedback to improve the site and make it a valuable resource for wildlifers everywhere. Sincerely, Jeff Stetz and Mike Sawaya

Mallows, and oxeyes, and pinks (that are white), oh my! #marshesinbloom #fieldseason
We post a lot about the above ground parts of the plant, but roots are pretty neat too. This picture clearly depicts how important roots are at preventing erosion; even after intense rains, roots cling to the dirt and hold steady. — The thick, pinkish-purple roots are called prop or brace roots. The thin roots are part of a fibrous root system (a group of roots that grow and extend in a round, ball shape to about the size of a cantaloupe, 1-2 feet underground). — Fun fact: brace roots taste sweet and are a refreshing field snack 🌽 — #roots #erosion #research #teammcsteen #fieldseason #rain #maize #corn #proproots #braceroots #coolstuff

Where has the time gone!!?. My summer in Kodiak is coming to an end, 2 weeks and I'll be heading off to Syracuse NYC to continue taking classes for my PhD. This beautiful town of Kodiak sure has grown on me, especially when we get sunny days like this one. The Island of bears is well worth a visit. #bearisland #kodiak #kodiakalaska #discoverkodiak #travel #fieldseason #fieldwork #sunnydays #views #harbourside #summer #oceanviews #mountains #town #fishingtown #phdlife #lovethisplace #biologist #alaska #irishgal #colourful #bluesky
