We are looking for students to participate in a hydrographic cruise (~43 days duration) in February-March 2018 in the western Indian Ocean on the NOAA ship Ronald H. Brown, as part of US GO-SHIP.
Deadline for applications: September 22, 2017.
US GO-SHIP (Global Ocean Ship-based Hydrographic Investigations Program) collects data used by global CO2 and climate variability programs, among others. The website is http://usgoship.ucsd.edu.
Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO, UCSD) operates the NSF-funded portion of the US national program, which covers this upcoming 2018 cruise. The international GO-SHIP website is http://goship.
US GO-SHIP pays all travel costs. It also pays student support costs during the time of the cruise plus the few travel days before and after the cruise, if and only if, the student is enrolled at a U.S. institution. Non-students can apply. However, they can only receive the equivalent of SIO student support.
