Meet the Team: Making Maps with Manny & Alex
How do we start when exploring a new area? Step one is always to make a map! Meet two Seafloor Mapping alumni as they discuss how mappers reveal landscapes on the seafloor, how much of the world remains yet to be mapped, and how they discovered their STEM careers. Join Megan Cook with Corps of Exploration members Manny Byas and Alex Dawson as they answer questions about their paths onto E/V Nautilus and first few years of their careers, favorite discovery moments from sea, and tips for how students can get involved in this type of field. This event aired on September 2, 2020.
Launching our 2020 Nautilus season, this mapping expedition will extend from southern California to British Columbia to cover priority areas for future dives and to fill in gaps in bathymetry within the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone, a vast area located 200 miles offshore that contains natural resources like fisheries and mineral resources.
