Smiles on stormy seas

DMAD researchers keep spirits high despite rough seas and even a bit of snow

You see so many pictures on social media of researchers in swimwear with big smiles and bright blue skies in the background. You rarely see the other side of surveys on social media, partly because there are less surveys in the winter but partly because of the pressure of showing the ‘perfect life’. Our team in the Levantine Sea of Turkey have been through rain and rough waters for the last few days with even a bit of snow near Adana! But they’ve still managed to keep smiling as they collect important information to fill data gaps in one of the most data deficient areas of the Mediterranean.
