On Monday, February 6, 2017, around 1:30 a.m. CST, a sonic boom shook residents of the Midwest as a bright green fireball streaked through the night sky. The sound was that of a meteor, nearly the size of a minivan, entering our atmosphere. After its fall to Earth, radar spotted the end of its journey over Lake Michigan, approximately 10 miles off the coast of Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Teen explorers from Chicago, led by scientists from the Adler Planetarium's Far Horizons program, The Shedd Aquarium, and The Field Museum, team up to take on this Underwater ROV Meteorite Hunt. Interested explorers wanted!

I will be travelling across the Pacific Ocean on SV Paradigme 2 collecting observations for INaturalist. As I sail from California to Hawaï and French Polynesia, I will be taking pictures of wildlife encountered along the journey.

Recent Observations

For the last 6 years I have been living aboard and travelling across the oceans on SV Paradigme 2.0. I have travelled more 30 000 nm offshore up to now. Visited the Caribbean, the Azores, the Galapagos Islands, Malpelo, San Benedicto and many other remote islands along the way. At this point Sv Paradigme 2.0 is a proven blue water passage maker. It has all the required equipment to maximise safety at sea. Satellite data transmission is available on-board. The boat just went through anextensive re-fit and upgrade process to enhance it's safety, confort and autonomy while maximizing the use of renewable energy. It is ready for the open ocean again. I now want to add a scientific purpose to my ocean adventures. The initial intent would be to contribute observations to I-Naturalist. I would love to collaborate with any scientific project that would have a data collection need in the Pacific. Wether I am assigned a data collection protocol or if I can safely bring a small scientific team to a remote Pacific atoll, I would consider any request made by a serious scientific project. The video included in the link show the images from my trip San Benedicto Island. Part of the images were captured while free diving. The SCUBA diving action was realized thanks to the support of friends of mine from SV Bella Nave who had a compressor on-board their boat. The video is a good showcase of the available capability that SV Paradigme 2.0 brings to an expedition. I am actively looking into the option of procuring an ROV in order to maximise my ability to collect observations safely to greater depths then would be reachable through SCUBA diving. Looking forward to inputs from this community. I strongly believe in the concept of Citizen science. I hope that I can use my ocean going adventures to help in scientific data collection! Thanks in advance for passing the word around!
Due to the changes in the Open Explorer platform, and as a S.E.E. Initiative Expedition, we'll be migrating to the National Geographic Society platform during the next month. The Expedition is going on full force after some initial setbacks concerning grants and funding, and we'll be back posting in the next weeks on a more consistent base. Thank you to the Open Explorer platform for feeding our Conservation dreams and to connect so many scientists and citizen scientists. Nuno
