CREEP INTO THE DEEPEND, YEAR 3: The deep is by far the largest affected habitat from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Join diverse scientists as they continue their long-term investigation on impacts of this environmental disaster on the deep-sea from December 4 to 8, 2017.

Creep Into the DEEPEND is a WhaleTimes, Inc. Virtual Research Mission, in cooperation with the DEEPEND Consortium and the Oceanscape Network. For more information visit whaletimes.org

Monday's topic: 

What’s eating you? A look at deep-sea parasites! 

Full schedule:

• Monday: Fish Parasites by Matt Woodstock

• Tuesday: Oddities of the Deep (Mystery of the Monster Baby by Heather Bracken-Grissom and It’s Not Odd, It’s A Heteropod by Kris Clark)

• Wednesday: Babies of the Deep-Sea (Studying Baby Snappers by Sebastian Velez and Baby Crustaceans by Laura Timm)

• Thursday: Strange Adaptations of the Deep (Silver Camouflaging by Tammy Frank)

• Friday: Eating Strategies of Deep-Sea Animals (Into the Gape by April Cook)

 

Texas A&M University has created a DEEPEND display booth at their Sea Life Facility. This booth allows visitors to learn about deep-sea and epipelagic research through posters, interactive educational games, and educational information hand-outs. Hundreds of visitors (including grade school children, senior citizen groups, new students and parents, undergraduate and graduate students) get to view and interact with the DEEPEND booth each year.

DEEPEND Starts the Master’s Monday Blog Series

We are beginning a blog series which will feature DEEPEND Master’s students and their thesis’ projects. Every other Monday we will post a new blog from one of our graduate students describing their research and what they have found thus far. The blogs will have exciting images related to their work from the field or in the lab. Our very first Master’s student to post a blog was Kristine Clark, a Master’s student at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, who works on heteropods. What is a heteropod? Find out here! 

Today we are featuring our second Master’s student blog by Sebastian Velez, a student at Wilkes Honors College of Florida Atlantic University in Jupiter, FL. Sebastian studies juvenile snappers and groupers found way offshore! Read all about his work here

Please visit the blog homepage to read these and other exciting blogs. Do you want to be notified when we post new content? Subscribe to our blog on the blog homepage
