Current Tides Volume 4 is here!

Current Tides Volume 4 is here!

Our dedicated team of authors and editors worked diligently through 2019 to bring you the latest installment of the Current Tides project. Volume four is here, and with it comes an interesting, honest, and at times humorous look into some of the latest research to come out of Dalhousie University’s Department of Oceanography – through the eyes of the students.

We hope you enjoy this latest issue, and be sure to check out volumes one, two, and three, if you haven’t already.

Oops we did it again!

Once again our student-led magazine Current Tides is ready to showcase the ongoing research at Dalhousie’s Department of Oceanography. This year, the third volume of the Current Tides magazine features the research project of one of our undergraduate students, in addition to 8 graduate student projects, reflecting our ever-evolving magazine and the amazing opportunities this Department offers to its students.

This magazine requires unimaginable effort from numerous members of our student society (DOSA) and the support of several sponsors. As such, the Editor-in-Chief, Lorenza Raimondi, would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody once again.

The authors who created amazing articles that are accessible to a broader audience than just the scientific community made this volume very exciting; thank you Anne Lombardi, Kevin Sorochan, Jonathan Izett, Alysse Mathalon, Sebastian Haas, Liuqian Yu, Francisco Avendano, Jacoba Mol and Danielle Moore.

The editors were amazingly patient and meticulous in reviewing the articles. Without them none of this would have been possible, so thank you Krysten Rutherford, Tristan Guest, Jenna Hare, Danielle Denley, Hansen Johnson, Anne McKee and Ricardo Arruda.

And last but not least, thanks to all our sponsors without which we couldn’t print or launch our brand new magazine. Thanks to the Department of Oceanography, to the Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response Network (MEOPAR), to the Canadian Excellence Research Chair (CERC.OCEAN), to the Ocean Frontier Institute (OFI), to the Dalhousie Student Union (DSU) and the Faculty of Graduate studies (FGS). You all made our dreams for this volume of Current Tides come true.

We hope you enjoy the read once again!

Cheers, The Current Tides Team.

In case you missed them, you can also get the first and second of the magazine online.

The story continues!

Thanks to the work of editor in chief Justine McMillan and many a DOSA member, we now have volume two of the Current Tides magazine! This brand new edition even comes with audio: You can listen to an example humpback whale song used in the ‘Having a Whale of a Time with Signal Distortion.’ article.

We hope you enjoy this brand new issue covering some of the work done most recently here at Dalhousie Oceanography.

In case you missed it, the first issue is also available online.
