In addition to this fishing trip, I have been to the FSU Coastal and Marine Lab in St. Theresa, FL, one of the most biologically diverse places in North America. There I learned a lot about how industries that use the Gulf of Mexico as a resource are impacting it. Another great place was the Antarctic Research Facility, probably one of the coldest places in Florida and the largest storehouse for arctic core samples. Then the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, where I work every day, is home to the strongest magnet. There is so much scientific diversity here. As my last week at the Mag Lab winds down I cannot help but to reminisce on all of the wonderful experiences. I am very appreciative of the exposure to geochemistry and marine sciences, the life of a researcher, beautiful places and great people.
