C Petrone  Ocean and environmental educator. Lacrosse guy. Getting outside and taking some pictures, with some inside pics for good measure. Mostly iPhone 6.


Last night, a giant #devil #seahorse swam through #DelawareBay. #latergram

#Sediment cores for days! We got an inside look at the International Ocean Discovery Program's (IODP) Gulf Coast Core Repository at Texas A&M University today. Over 100km (62+ miles) of Pacific Ocean deep sea sediment cores, dating back to 1968, are archived here. The cores are kept at 42-degrees F to preserve them for ongoing and future research. Scientists from around the world can borrow and analyze any of these cores as needed. Pretty spectacular. #science!

View from the Eller Oceanography & Meteorology building. Doing some #ProjectVIDEO work, so stay tuned for some on-location #15SecondScience episodes and new #VR tours! The Bonfire Memorial is in the background. We learned that the eleven arches memorialize the eleven people lost in the disaster, and each arch faces the direction of their hometown.

Tons of #copepods and four #fishlarvae in the #plankton tow for today's #BoyScouts oceanography merit badge program! This is just a small sub-sample. I do love a good plankton tow. #nerd #delawarebay #video

Another giant congrats to @willdabeast_98 on his #EagleScout! Keep up the good work.

The 2015 Delaware State Boys Lacrosse Championship crew. Today we lost Bill Neaton (second from right); a great official who mentored me up to and through this game, my first state final. He took me under his wing and was a great friend. I'm really going to miss him.

I'm not in Delaware anymore. #uphill

#NOSB17 field trip on #YaquinaBay with @marinediscoverytours. Swipe to see students prepping the #plankton net, the net fishing, and then seeing the catch under the projected microscope! #NOSBturns20 #NOSBrocks
