Brendan Philip 13

Brendan Philip

Brendan Philip is an undergraduate in the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington and will be conducting his thesis research during the VISIONS '13 cruise. His thesis focuses on the efficiency of methane transport from the seabed into overlying waters at Hydrate Ridge. The degree to which seafloor methane seeps contribute to atmospheric methane concentrations is largely uncertain, and further research into the pathways of methane transport is needed. This is Brendan’s second cruise with the OOI.
