 As the youngest member of the Winter 2015 cruise team, it is with both excitement and trepidation that I set sail onboard the S.A. Agulhas II. I am entering my fourth year as an undergraduate at Princeton University, where I have been studying in the Department of Geosciences with a focus on physical oceanography and climate. With recent Princeton graduate Preston Kemeny, I will be helping out with several projects onboard, including seawater sampling for nitrogen isotope analysis (a collaboration between Stellenbosch University, University of Cape Town, and Princeton) and trace metal analysis (which involves CSIR and SU). It is my hope that samples collected this winter will form the basis for my senior thesis next year. I want to acknowledge the support of the Princeton Environmental Institute, whose generous funding has enabled my participation in the cruise.
