The team has been working hard to create inspiring outreach materials for FjordPhyto that highlight the importance and beauty of science, tourism, and phytoplankton.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS that on June 8th, Monday there will be TWO short presentations (12 minutes each) by Masters students in the same masters program FjordPhyto was created through.
They'll present their work at the following times (Pacific Standard Time):
- 9:30 am Gabriela Lamanna (from El Salvador) has created a documentary film about phytoplankton citizen science in Antarctica with interviews from Dr. Maria Vernet, myself, and a polar guide Caitlyn Webster using footage I've gathered over the past 3 years. Drifters of the Sea: Antarctic Citizen Science
- 10:00am Celeste Kroeger-Campodonico (from Chile) is creating a non-scientific phytoplankton Identification guide about Antarctic Phytoplankton beautifully illustrated by Ingrid and Celeste, including microscope images taken by graduate student Martina Mascioni. Science goes on Vacation: A Book for Travelers Discovering the Antarctic Microscopic Forest
Hope you are able to tune in (time in PST).
