Watching the Phoenix Rise - Debriefing Stage
Nat Geo Open Explorer
By Jacob Jaskiel

For a couple of weeks now, I’ve had the opportunity to reflect upon what we just experienced and accomplished on this wildly successful expedition through the Phoenix Islands Protected Area. Our cohort of 19 students and 15 scientists and crew sailed the Robert C. Seamans over 3,500 nautical miles while contributing to a dataset that now spans five years of oceanographic, biological, and chemical data. We conducted 46 Hydrocasts and 96 plankton net tows.

Yoana Guzman, a student in the Woods Hole Partnership Education Program (PEP), had never been on - nor even near - the ocean.

“Home to me is mostly desert,” said the Cal State, Chico student who’s pursuing a double major in electrical engineering and physics. “This was my first time near a large body of water.”

It was also the first time that a voyage aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer, operating out of Woods Hole this summer, was incorporated into PEP.  During their first week of classes, PEP students boarded the Cramer at Dyers Dock and embarked on a four-day cruise through Vineyard Sound and Buzzards Bay.

In 1998, Ben Lecomte swam across the Atlantic Ocean.  Now he’s taking on the Pacific.

The long-distance swimmer began June 5, in Tokyo, and hopes to reach San Francisco in about six months. That’s a distance of approximately 5,500 miles. The goal, says Lecomte, is to conduct research and raise awareness about climate change and ocean pollution.
