The scientists and crew would love your questions. Particularly from schools. All age groups. Just use the ‘comments’ below or email me: teacheratsea@aquinas.ac.uk or tweet to @teacheratseaMAR.
We will get back to you asap.

  1. Good morning Angela! Matt’s mum here! I’m really enjoying all of your updates as it’s giving me (and the family) a really good insight into what he actually does all day on board that ship. Hope he isn’t giving you too much grief on your shifts together.
    I do have a question for you – can you recommend any books that give an introduction to geology for scientists from other backgrounds? I belong to a book group that reads popular science titles (most definitely not text books) and we’d love learn more about plate tectonics or geology in general. Last year we all read Trilobite by Richard Fortey which we all enjoyed very much, that’s the kind of level I’m thinking of. Are you able to recommend some other titles for us please?
    Many thanks, Christine

    1. Glad you like the blog ๐Ÿ™‚ All the scientists and crew are just lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ Hmm as for suggested titles… there is a book called Pompeii which is good. I can’t remember the author but it’s about a chap who is in charge of the aqueducts. The account of the eruption – throughout- is excellent. Martian is another good read. Lots of science and engineering in the novel. As always the novel is better than the film. I can’t think of any others off the of my head. I’ll ask for recommendations via Twitter as see what turns up.
      I’m loving the Hawaiian shirts – will be doing a blog on what scientists wear very soon. Angela ๐Ÿ™‚
