One of the key parts of AMT is that scientists from many institutions, from all over the world, have contributed to this important programme to help us understand a little more about the health of the Atlantic Ocean. With so many different researchers taking part it ensures that the science carried out on board Discovery is as diverse as possible. This gives us the best possible insight into the health of this vast ocean, and it ensures AMT is a vital resource for many different scientific fields. Our next guest blogger is Joe Snow, he is a PhD student at the National Oceanographic Centre (Southampton) and he is going to explain a little about what he does whilst on board.
