Internship at Alpine Ocean

This Summer, I will likely have a crew position on an oceanographic research vessel of Alpine Ocean, a division of Gardline group, a company which specializes in Geophysical surveys, vibracore and geotechnical services, Hydrographic survey services, as well as oceanographic survey services and enviornmental, biological and marine wildlife survey services. Sediment transport studies are involved and subaqueous cores will be drilled, so I’m very excited to have the opportunity to work on a vessel focused on many aspects of geoscience, and specifically sedimentology. I will be away on trips for 2-4 weeks at a time, working 12 hours on, 12 hours off, and will likely have tasks pertaining to the operation and maintenance of the vessel as well as assisting in research and data collection. Our first trip will likely be off the coast of Virginia, but subsequent trips this summer could be anywhere in the world. I will be going to survival training in two weeks in New London which I’m moderately excited for, but I cannot wait to be out on the open ocean helping operate the vessel and collect data
