Brendan Philip

Brendan Philip is a recent graduate oif the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington and will be expanding on his thesis research during the VISIONS '14 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 third cruise with the OOI.
