Am amazing opportunity for students is to spend a Semester at sea, doing research and learning about the ocean, sailing, navigation, Pacific cultures, maritime history, marine biology, oceanography and more. One such programme has visited New Zealand for a few years now and a few of us had the privilige to join them for dinner on board in Auckland harbour this week, and share information on our research. You can follow their voyage blog here.

The photographs show the Chief Scientist, Dr Kerry Whittaker (right), Mark Costello (left), and PhD students Chhaya Chaudhary and Aimee van der Reis from the University of Auckland on board, with the Sky Tower behind, and a photo of the ship mast and sign.
