I'm excited to be learning how to use programming and modelling software to represent how the physical and biological variables interact over time.
I will also be collecting oceanographic data in Kachemak Bay by participating in monthly oceanographic cruises which involves learning how to use (very expensive) sampling equipment. She has been invited to join her SBB internship host, Lee Post, on another killer whale articulation project, this time in California!
Not only did the SBB program give me hands on field and lab experience, but I was able to network with researchers and scientists on the national level.
By putting my name out into the field of marine biology, SBB has helped me open a lot of new doors for potential graduate schools, internships, and job opportunities for the future.
While on her way to meet her estranged father, Grace gets her dress caught in her bike chain, leaving her stranded on the street and left to make difficult decisions about forgiveness and revenge.
Chains is a UNCW Honors Thesis written/directed by Jillian Carney.This summer, Jamie will be looking at linkages between whales and ecosystem conditions, with part of the project being to use oceanographic data to tell the story about warming, forage fish, and whales.If you see her around, make sure to congratulate her on this prestigious award!The first song would be very restrained and filmed naturally, the second would be a normal musical number with a bunch of extras, and the third was meant to be much more personal for the characters.We had a fairly large and exceptionally talented crew for a student production.I'm thrilled to be back in Homer for the summer and I'm excited to be working in the balance of oceanographic (physical) data and whale (biological) data.I'm quite interested in biology but I'll be piecing together the interactions of how physical environmental drivers impact whale distribution and movement.Overall this film was even more of a challenge than any film I've worked on as a cinematographer.Sam Athey is currently a Ph D student at the University of Toronto with a focus in environmental chemistry.Jamie's job as an articulation intern was to clean and prepare marine mammal bones collected from strandings for use in mounted skeletal displays and classroom education.During her internship, she took on a key role in the articulation of a neonate orca skeleton, fondly named, Irniaq. Before heading back to the University of North Carolina Wilmington to finish her Senior Year, Jamie will spend the summer in Homer participating in a 10-week, full-time paid internship with NOAA as a Hollings Scholar.
