Twenty-Four Days of Science at Sea

By: Michelle Cusolito

All aboard for science!

Join scientists from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and their international partner organizations on a research voyage to study the ocean twilight zone. Science writer Michelle Cusolito takes you along for the journey of a lifetime. 

From boarding the ship and unpacking equipment to facing massive storms in the middle of the Atlantic, this book details the fascinating techniques used to study the deep ocean as well as the daily details of life aboard a Spanish research vessel. Meet remarkable people, discover amazing animals, and learn more at sea than you ever imagined!

“Michelle Cusolito captures the essence of high-seas research in A Window Into the Ocean Twilight Zone. She skillfully guides the reader through what it’s like to be a scientist at sea—the anticipation of departure, the challenges of heavy weather, and the thrill of discovery in one of the ocean’s most remote and mysterious regions. In the process, she underscores the urgency behind advancing knowledge of Earth’s last frontier—the ocean.”
     -Peter de Menocal, President and Director of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
