Float Your Boat outreach project

US GEOTRACES participates in the “Float Your Boat” an educational outreach program that provides young people an opportunity to learn about the changing Arctic, marine debris, and maritime careers through participation in a study of Arctic drift patterns, by sending their own toy boats to the Arctic. This project recreates an historic drift cask study conducted at the turn of the last century. Float Your Boat aims to provide students with an understanding and appreciation of their connection with the world’s oceans.

FloatBoat

The US GEOTRACES plans to deploy over 1300 boats on the ice as drifters to track the ice movement across the Arctic. This project was featured on the Float Your Boat home page: http://floatboat.org

A short (less than a minute) video showing all the 1,300 colourful boats as they were packed in boxes for loading on board USCGC Healy is available on the following link: http://floatboat.org/node/6

 

 

Sharing oceanography with prisoners

Catherine Jeandel (GEOTRACES IPO senior scientist) and Virginie Sanial (PhD student at LEGOS, France) scientists participants at the French GEOVIDE cruise (GA01) are members of the NGO "Les étoiles brillent pour tous (The Stars Shine for Everybody)" in Toulouse, France. The objective of this NGO is disseminating research in confined environments such as prisons or hospitals but also in rural or inland areas.

In this context, Catherine and Virginie set up a project with the Seysses Prison (Toulouse, France). During 6 months (April-October 2014), they exchanged with prisoners (via their teachers). They did this before the cruise, during the cruise (thanks to a cruise blog accessible here, in French only) and after the cruise. The project ended with a session at the Toulouse Knowledge Festival called, La Novela, in October 2014.

We invite you to view the video below about this project shown during the festival "La Novela" (in French, subtitled in English).

GEOTRACES as an example of successful international scientific cooperation

GEOTRACES was presented by Don Rice (NSF, Division of Ocean Sciences, US) as a successful example of international cooperation at the meeting  "The Atlantic – Our Shared Resource: Making the Vision Reality" (16-17 April, 2015, European Commission, Brussels), to follow the Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean Research Cooperation signed by the European Union, US and Canada in May 2013.

We invite you to watch the talk of Don Rice:
