A Return to

PALMYRA Stanford@SEA alumna Dr. Amanda Netburn, S-187, a pelagic ecologist at NOAA, recounts her May, 2017 return to Palmyra Atoll, 1,000 miles south of Hawaii in the Northern Line Islands, aboard the NOAA Ship R/V Okeanos Explorer.

A

fter departing Pago Pago two weeks ago, Palmyra is finally in sight. Gorgeous and inviting even from a distance, seabirds and dolphins greet us, and we can see the turquoise blue entry into the lagoon. I remember entering that lagoon 14 years ago on the SSV Robert C. Seamans (with Stanford@SEA class S-187), where I swam with blacktip sharks, and saw coconut crabs and blue-footed boobies roam. That trip was the launch of my professional journey in marine science. I have since been to sea on 12 research cruises, and am currently on NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer in my role as Research Program Administrator at the Cooperative Institute for Ocean Exploration, Research, and Technology at Florida Atlantic University supporting NOAA’s Office of Ocean Exploration and Research. I am thrilled to be returning to Palmyra, this time on the Mountains in the Deep: Exploring the Central Pacific Basin expedition. Our mission is to explore the deep waters of the U.S. Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument (PRIMNM). The expedition is part of the three-year Campaign to Address Pacific monument Science, Technology, and Ocean NEeds (CAPSTONE). At Palmyra, there is a high diversity of animals on the seafloor, including a variety of corals, sponges, crinoids, brittle stars, and sea urchins. I also observe a very high abundance of animals in the water column, more than at any site we have visited on this expedition. The near-surface layer is filled with salps, colonial gelatinous tunicates that can form very long chains. We see many fish from 200-250 meters; below that is a mix of chaetognaths (arrow worms), fishes, various crustaceans, ctenophores (comb jellies), and siphonophores (colonial jellyfish). The high abundance of salps and fishes here is indicative

of high productivity in the area, because both need a significant amount of food to thrive in high numbers. When we visited Palmyra on the Seamans, we took a quick jaunt over to Kingman Reef, and the Okeanos Explorer is now on its way there too to survey the deep water offshore of the reef. The morning after our Palmyra dive, I feel the dynamic positioning engage and get out of bed for a look outside. It takes me a minute to find Kingman. Just barely emerging from the sea surface, it is recognizable only by the wave break in the distance. Fourteen years ago, the seas were rough, but we were able to deploy a mini-ROV off the side of the ship. There were sharks everywhere! Today, we lower the ROV to 1000 meters and document an assemblage of urchins, sea stars, anemones, acorn worms, hydroids, corals, brittle stars, sponges, shrimp, and squat lobsters. We also see fishes, including oreo dories, rattails, and a hatchet fish, and again - even at these depths - the water is very sharky! This is the first dive we have conducted this expedition where we see two different species of sharks - a deepwater dogfish and a sand tiger shark. The midwater does not seem to have nearly the density of organisms that there was at Palmyra, though we did still see a good diversity of animals, including several ctenophores, larvaceans, chaetognaths, siphonophores, a snipe eel, and its prey, sergestid shrimps. There was also a layer of salps around 50-100 meters, though not as densely distributed as at the Palmyra site. I wonder why we see this difference in density. I hope someday I will have the chance to sail back again to explore more of Palmyra and Kingman and find out! By Amanda N. Netburn, PhD:

A SUMMER IN

MAINE Donors support extensive work on SSV Corwith Cramer By Doug Karlson

W

hether on shore or on the high seas, SEA likes to dream up challenges. Just ask members of the Marine Operations Department. This past year, the task before them was enormous: take a 30-year-old steel brigantine and perform major maintenance in every compartment, on every system, from stem to stern, from the bottom of the keel to the top of the main truck. Oh, and do it in just four months, in a shipyard nearly 300 miles away from the ship’s home port. It was a challenge that would never have been possible if other critical members of the SEA family, our donors, hadn’t supported the project every step of the way.

6 | SPRING 2018 · ANNUAL REPORT

The Corwith Cramer Major Maintenance Project began long before the Cramer arrived at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine on June 13. Months earlier, SEA staff were busy assessing, planning and designing updated systems, ordering parts, seeking bids, lining up crew, and arranging accommodations. Planning teams were assigned to specific areas, such as hull, rigging, engineering, science upgrades, and galley. (Visitors to the Marine Ops Department couldn’t help but notice the tape on the floor, put there to mock up the refurbished galley.) When the ship sailed to the shipyard, the planning teams went too. They were overseen by SEA Marine Operations Coordinator

Jen Haddock, C-109, who served as project manager, and David Bank, W-82, SEA director of marine operations.

“We definitely added life to the ship and addressed areas we knew needed to be addressed,” said Haddock.

“The goal was to pursue maintenance and upgrade projects that required at least four weeks of shipyard time to strengthen safety and reliability of SEA’s senior flagship,” explained Bank.

There’s still more to be done. “We knew there would be a list we would defer. Some electronics still to be installed, and new ratlines to be installed,” said Haddock. “There are more projects that we didn’t have time to complete, so we have a good list for next year,” added Cavacas.

“The planning beforehand was very important and it made the project go smoothly. Still, we allowed for unexpected surprises,” said SEA Senior Chief Engineer Mickey Cavacas, C-231, who oversaw engineering and machinery. Other team leaders included Sarah Herard, C-197, (deck and rig), Elliot Rappaport, W-79 (special projects), and Georgie Zelenak, C-233B (scientific equipment). No matter how much planning is done, a project like this is bound to offer up some challenging surprises, such as the unanticipated rebuild of the controllable-pitch propeller gear (which required complex back-and-forths with the manufacturer in Denmark) and significant steel corrosion in the doghouse. “The biggest challenge is the unexpected. Once you start opening things up there are things you’re going to find that you didn’t know about,” said Cavacas. As new priorities emerged, he said it was important to “keep an open mind, and be willing to change plans.” One pleasant surprise, said Haddock, was “just how invested everyone was to make the project happen. There was strong community buy-in.” She said SEA deckhands as well as yard workers pitched in to the project with great enthusiasm. That motivation was critical in meeting the deadline.

It wasn’t all work. The crew enjoyed their time in Maine, and found time to explore Belfast, visit swimming holes, go on hikes, or play Frisbee to relax. “A lot of the crew had never been to Maine. They thoroughly enjoyed it, and the locals enjoyed meeting the crew and watching the whole gang walk down to the shipyard every morning,” said Haddock. Haddock and Cavacas can’t say enough about the SEA crew who spent the summer in Maine. “It wouldn’t have happened without all the teams we put together,” said Haddock. Added Cavacas: “They were fantastic. We really couldn’t have done it without them.”

ABOUT THE SHIPYARD… Located on Penobscot Bay in Belfast, Maine, Front Street Shipyard is a state-of-the-art custom boat builder, service yard, and marina. Opened in 2011, it has a 480-ton lifting capacity and deep-water access, allowing it to service vessels up to 200 feet in length.

“The timeline was ambitious. We only had four months in the yard. We wanted to do all we could,” said Haddock. That meant most crews worked from 7 in the morning to about 4:30 in the afternoon. Some crews worked a staggered schedule, from 9 to 6, to avoid too much onboard congestion, especially while painting. As the project neared completion, the crew worked six days a week. The effort paid off. According to Cavacas, the engineering systems are now “greatly improved.”

“Thorough inspection and repairs to the steel hull were among the project’s top priority.”

EA Semester student Alex Linares remembers the moment when he realized he wanted to dive deeper, literally, into the world of marine biology.

While getting an associate’s degree at St. Petersburg College, Alex, a resident of Florida who is originally from Puerto Rico, went snorkeling with his school group to the Keys. “When I looked down I saw SCUBA divers. I was upset I couldn’t go deeper to be face to face with the coral.” That led to SCUBA classes and becoming open water certified. It also led Alex to Barry University and a major in marine biology with a minor in diving education. As part of the Barry diving program, he was required to attend an immersive study abroad course in Bonaire which led him to complete his Divemaster certification. “I went to school for marine biology but once I started diving I really got hooked,” he said. For the summer before graduation, Alex sought an internship in his field. Through a Google search, he learned about the Woods Hole Partnership Education Program (PEP). Alex applied and was accepted.

10 | SPRING 2018 · ANNUAL REPORT

PEP is an internship program designed to promote diversity in the scientific community of Woods Hole. College students majoring in the natural sciences live on the SEA campus, take classes, and conduct internships at neighboring scientific organizations. Alex spent the summer of 2016 interning at NOAA’s Northeast Fisheries Science Center. He worked with NOAA scientists Anne Richards and Sandy Sutherland, W-118, studying monkfish to determine ways to gauge their age and growth. Back at Barry University, his PEP internship was counted as a capstone project, and he received three credits. “All the professors were really proud that I went to Woods Hole.” Following graduation in the fall of 2016, Alex began networking for a research position. A contact he had made during his PEP internship, Diving Safety Officer Ed O’Brien at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution offered him a second PEP internship. Alex spent the summer of 2017 working with WHOI dive operations and took a scientific diving course through the

American Academy of Underwater Science. That gave him the certification needed for research diving. While enrolled in the PEP program, Alex took full advantage of the many talks and lectures available to him. He mixed with scientists from NOAA and MBL and learned about their grad school experiences and careers. While in Woods Hole, he also attended SEA’s Marine Biodiversity and Conservation Symposium in June. He was “super intrigued” by the presentations and decided to apply to SEA Semester. Accepted into class C-275, Ocean Exploration, Alex returned to the Woods Hole campus in September for the six-week shore component. Unfortunately, just before the sea component was to begin, he injured his ankle and was unable to join his shipmates on the cruise. Though disappointed, he followed their progress through the ships’ blog. Now that his ankle is heeled, he’s enrolled in Class C-277, Colonization to Conservation in the Caribbean, from January through March 2018. Once again, Alex finds himself back in Woods Hole!

Following his SEA Semester program, Alex is looking forward to beginning his career. “I have a love for the ocean. The diving experience made me want to focus on underwater research and archaeology,” he said. “It was really great to see that there are so many different career paths for someone with my interests. It’s cool to be in a town that’s science focused and be with people with similar interests. The PEP program really helped open doors for me.” Learn more about PEP, go to www.WoodsHoleDiversity.org

NO, trash should NOT splash! SEA intern helps launch plastics pollution program

An overview tracing the path of all the plastics ever made.

All the plastics ever made SEA’s Kara Lavender Law co-authors comprehensive study Imagine a world without plastic. According to SEA Research Professor of Oceanography Kara Lavender Law and other scientists who last summer co-authored the first-ever global analysis of all the plastics ever made, that’s almost impossible to do, given the widespread use of plastics since the 1950s. “Production, use, and fate of all plastics ever made,” seeks to guide strategies to confront the problem of plastics pollution. In addition to Law, the co-authors are Dr. Jenna Jambeck, University of Georgia,

and Dr. Roland Geyer, University of California, Santa Barbara. The study, published by Science Advances, traces worldwide plastics production, use and what we do with plastic after we’re done with it. The authors estimate that 8,300 million metric tons (Mt) of plastics have been produced to date, and that as of 2015, 6,300 Mt of plastic waste has been generated. Of that waste, 9% has been recycled, 12% incinerated, and 79% sent to landfills or discarded in the natural environment. At the current rate,

the researchers predict, about 12,000 Mt of plastic waste will be in landfills or the natural environment by 2050. According to the paper, without a strategy for what to do with plastic waste “humans are conducting a singular uncontrolled experiment on a global scale, in which billions of tons of material will accumulate across all major terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems on the planet.” To read more, visit: www.sea. edu/plastic_analysis

Madeline Hughes , S-271, now a senior at Wellesley College, spent the summer as SEA’s first ever Single-Use Plastics Reduction Program Intern. Funded by the NOAA Marine Debris Program, the program is a collaboration between Sea Education Association and the Falmouth Water Stewards’ Skip the Straw Program. Its goal is to apply behavioral science insights to reduce single-use plastics pollution in the ocean. Madeline’s first task was coming up with a catchier name for the program (instead of Single-Use Plastic Reduction Program). Her solution: Trash Shouldn’t Splash. She looked at social norm research to design effective outreach to the community and local government, and designed a survey to gain a better picture of how single-use plastics are used in Woods Hole restaurants. She also helped design a survey of public attitudes about single-use plastics and presented her behavioral science research to the SEA community. “Through educational campaigns like Trash Shouldn’t Splash, simple behavioral changes can have a great impact on world health, and I am grateful to have had this opportunity,” said Madeline.

CHAIR OF THE BOARD’S MESSAGE

SEA is an unparalleled organization because of your support. On behalf of the board of trustees, the president of SEA, Peg Brandon, and all the crew, faculty, and staff at SEA, I am pleased to share this annual report of philanthropy with you. This past year has seen many changes at SEA. We said “goodbye” to Jan Wagner, our stalwart and long-serving director of development. Much of what you will find in these pages is in no small part the result of her love and dedication to SEA for the past 17 years. We’re grateful for all Jan did to promote and grow philanthropic support for SEA during her tenure, and we wish her an enjoyable retirement. In addition to the standard course of business that SEA undertakes each year, the organization conducted major maintenance on the SSV Corwith Cramer. It was completed in the time allotted and funded through the generous support of donors to the “Unfurling” phase of our upcoming Capital Campaign. Our donors’ support for this important project has launched SEA on what will be an exciting and transformative adventure! We will share more about the new Capital Campaign in the coming months. Suffice to say, SEA is in position to move forward boldly with our dynamic staff leadership in development including Julia Alling, director of development, and Monica Bowman, director of stewardship. This year, we are focusing on gifts and pledges from trustees and overseers to demonstrate our own enthusiasm for this very important campaign. As ever, your support of the Annual Fund means that SEA can deliver its mission every day. Because of your support, SEA has a growing voice in the world of science, leadership education and global climate change research. From my position as the chair of the board, I am proud to be part of the community of global citizens that bands together each year to support SEA. Thank you.

Richard Cost Chair, SEA Board of Trustees

n a world in which physical reality is too often experienced sitting with an electronic device, Sea Education Association presents young people with an opportunity to interact with the physical world in an unmediated manner. Sailing on the SSV Robert C. Seamans or the SSV Corwith Cramer as part of a working crew not only connects the student with the sea and the devastation human activity is inflicting on our home, it connects the student with a long history of our interaction with sea and wind.

in science or interested in challenging oneself, SEA provides a unique opportunity. Combining academic rigor with the opportunity to be part of a crew on a working sailing vessel, SEA allows young people to expand their horizons, develop leadership skills and connect with our past, present, and future. Spending several weeks at sea in the context of a whole life is but a short moment. It is, however, an indelible moment that will be remembered long after returning to shore.

Our own daughter’s experience sailing across the Pacific (S-248) and the horizons it opened up for her, are why we think it is important to do what we can to support SEA in its mission. Whether a student is intent on pursuing a career

To ensure that this kind of defining experience remains available, we are committed to supporting SEA in any way that we can. We urge others to do the same. Thomas Rafferty and Dian Pickoff
