This will be Joe’s 11th trip to Antarctica. Much of his research focuses on krill ecology and the use of active acoustics (echosounders) to measure the distribution and abundance of these animals. On this trip, he’ll be using a variety of echosounders mounted on different platforms: the hull of the NB Palmer, the camera sled, and (weather permitting) small boats.  He’ll also spend some time helping out (or at least trying to help) the folks processing the net samples since information about the animals and their size are critical data for interpreting the acoustic information. When not exploring the Western Antarctic Peninsula, he’s an associate professor in the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences at Stony Brook University on Long Island, NY.
