This article doesn't discuss results found from this research, since it is still underway, but does a good job demonstrating the process of marine research on a boat through the slideshow and videos. So many science articles do not show what's happening behind-the-scenes, and I think that is part of what is so fascinating about the scientific process. Who wouldn't love to look at these glowing and iridescent creatures while wearing flip-flops and exploring the ocean on a really nice boat? It almost makes me want to give up studying plants and butterflies and go join them (almost). I was very close to choosing marine biology for my undergraduate major, and have always been fascinated by marine research. Sure, you have to watch out for sunburns and rough waters and are in tight quarters with other people, but you don't have to worry about encountering dangerous animals, poisonous plants or biting insects, getting lost while hiking or falling down a hillside. Plus, there's no commute time from your bunk to the lab or your sampling site! It sounds like a great deal to me.
