2019-2020 Adventure Series: Melissa Miller: Crossing Every Ocean – For Science
March 19, 2020
Marine technician Melissa Miller discusses her research expeditions that have taken her across six continents and all of the world’s oceans as a part of our Adventure Series.
Melissa Miller spends up to half the year on research vessels as a marine technician for Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. She has traveled more than 125,000 nautical miles, the equivalent of nearly six times around the world, and has crossed every ocean. She has even been to the North Pole. She also works as a science writer and serves as ship historian for the research vessel Sally Ride. Her articles translate scientific research for a general audience, focusing on the people who live and work at sea. She is also a guest curator for an exhibit about Sally Ride at the Birch Aquarium in La Jolla, California.
For more than 70 years, Mystic Seaport Museum’s Adventure Series has connected audiences with extraordinary individuals with inspiring stories of survival, exploration, and personal achievement. Join the adventure!
