Question:

How do you feel about the Twilight Zone?

 

-Brody P., Tremont Middle School

 

Answer:

Everyone on this cruise is pretty deeply invested in studying the ocean twilight zone.

Here’s what two of our scientists had to say:

 

“I’m excited because there’s a lot that’s unknown about it, compared to the sunlit part of the ocean, and we think it could be important for a lot of ocean processes.”

-Henry Holm, PhD. Candidate

 

“There’s so much about the ocean that we don’t know yet. This cruise is trying to connect the twilight zone to the upper ocean. Once we know more about the different layers of the ocean, we’ll see the correlations and have a better understanding of the world.”

-Jessica Kozik, Research Assistant and Engineer
