Name: Caroline Dietz

What is your major? Marine Biology with a minor in Anthropology

How did you become interested in this major or field? I went to Sea World when I was seven.

Where do you see yourself five years from now? I'm not sure, my binoculars only reach
about 500 yards.

What part of the research on this trip has interested you the most? Using the side scan sonar in conjunction with the ROV equipment. Being able to super impose the position of the ROV onto the image received from the side scan really helped to understand what was being seen on the monitor from the ROV camera.

What part of the research has interested you the least? Processing the core samples.

Did you get sea sick on this trip? No, but I did almost get hit by a flying fish.
