A Reflection on Ocean Literacy, 2020 and Beyond
With the start of the new year, we are introducing a series of articles by Sea Education Association faculty and staff titled “Study Abroad and the Sea: Perspectives on Climate Change and the Ocean Environment.” The series is a diverse and varied examination of relevant ocean topics for college students interested in ocean research and policy. The first of this series examines the value of ocean literacy by SEA Assistant Professor of Oceanography Kerry Whittaker.
Here, on this last day of 2019, I find myself reflecting on another year as Oceanography Faculty with SEA. Even today, gazing out onto snow falling along the New England coastline and piling onto branches, railings, and roofs, my mind can easily jump back to the quarterdeck of the Robert C. Seamans carried by the humid trade winds of the South Pacific, or aloft on the Corwith Cramer as we glide through the Bermuda blue water.
