This outreach video was created by Willem Weertman, a UW School of Oceanography undergraduate who participated on Leg 1 of the VISIONS’17 program. The video is meant to serve as a visual guide to what students experience and learn when they join the annual UW VISIONS at-sea experiential education program that is part of the NSF-funded Cabled Array Ocean Observatories Initiative maintenance expeditions. During Leg 1, GoPro cameras were used to capture time-lapse imagery of most shipboard operations. These time-lapse videos, in concert with still photos and drone footage, were used to assemble the final product. Please, sit back and enjoy the show!
