Week 6 (July 16-20)Today is my final day in Tallahassee, so this is my last blog entry of the RET program! It has been a pretty quiet week, with many of the scientists at seminars or on vacation, but testing of the drifters has continued. It is very interesting to see the instruments on their “missions,” with the bladders filling up with oil as they think they are coming up to the surface (even though they are on land the whole time!). I also had time to share lesson plans and good conversation with Dr. Sophie Wacongne-Speer, the educational director of a local school, and to attend a wave seminar in the Dirac Science Library. I was able to finish my research paper/article on Drifters and Floats, and hope that it is decent enough to be published in the near future!
