ALUMNI IN ACTION:  Meet Seth Garfield

Doug Karlson, communications@sea.edu

SEA Semester

As a third-generation resident of Cuttyhunk and an aquaculture pioneer, Seth Garfield, W-23, has made a career on the water and he credits SEA Semester for much of his success.

An active member of the SEA community, Seth’s involvement began in 1975, when he enrolled in SEA Semester as a senior in high school.  He was the youngest in the class—most other students were juniors from Cornell University. His captain was John Wigglesworth, and the first mate was Wallace Stark.

THE VIEW FROM ALOFT: Spring Improvements to Woods Hole Campus

Jim Moynihan, Shore Facilities Coordinator

SEA Semester

As I write this, spring is just around the corner. You would think that the cold, winter months are the not-so-busy-time for SEA’s shore facilities coordinator. On the contrary! I may not be out and about as much, but my days are filled with planning and coordinating our much-needed springtime maintenance activities. I’m fortunate this year to have a six-week window of opportunity to get some larger improvement projects done that would otherwise interrupt student life here on campus.

Today is March 20, 2019. Today is our last full day of watch rotations. Today the sea was calm and the skies were sunny. We are about 20nm west of Kaikoura Peninsula.

I had dawn watch from 0100-0700.

Alumni Spotlight: Kalina Grabb

SEA Semester

SEA Semester presents an ocean of opportunity! Many of our alums continue their SEA Semester research back on their home campuses – and beyond. Kalina Grabb, who participated in SEA Semester class S-250 while an undergrad at Harvard University, recently returned to SEA as a coral reef specialist and instructor for our Caribbean Reef Expedition program. She is now a Ph.D. student in the MIT/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Joint Program, researching reactive oxygen species (ROS) and collaborating on a new submersible research instrument, called the DISCO, which she brought on board for this voyage for students to see in action. ⁣
