Transcript of Marine Biology

Benefits Hazards Marine Biology Summer Location: Coastal Field Station 9-10am > preparing to teach a class
10-11am > teaching a class of undergraduates
11-12pm > meeting with students for discussion
12-1pm > aerobics
1-2pm > lunch, reading papers
2-3pm > meeting with graduates, discussing experiments
3-4pm > prep for PRC experiments (chemical analysis)
4-5pm> preparation of samples in PRC experiments
5-6pm> experiments
6-7pm> photographing samples
9-10pm> preparing for tomorrow's class Famous Marine Biologists: Barbara Mcclintock- Nobel Peace Prize
Carl Chun- Vampire Squid
Sylvia Alice Earle- Tektite Project
Ruth Turner- 1st female to make use of a submarine
Joseph Ayers- books 1: research ships
2: coastal field stations
3. universities
4. aquariums Typical Daily Tasks:
diving beautiful reefs
sampling ocean from boats or ships
working in the laboratory
computer work, write-ups Starting Salary: The pay scale for a marine biologist rises significantly as their career progresses. The starting salary with a marine biologist with less than one year of experience is approximately $33,000 dollars. Marine biologists with 30+ years of experience have a median salary of about $103,000. When starting out, the pay is low but marine biologists with years of experience can achieve a six figure income. Marine Biology is... Typical Day Winter Locations: Education Requirements Marine Biology is the study of organisms in the ocean or other marine bodies of water. Related
fields include oceanography, ecology,
fisheries science, and marine
conservation. marine biologists can be found at work in one of these four locations: 9-9:30am > prep: organizing, walking from the station to the beach, and putting on scuba gear
9:30-10am > collecting underwater samples
10:30-11am > organizing samples, taking a break
11-12pm > collecting more samples
12-2pm > organizing samples, walking back to field station, putting samples in tanks, and having lunch
2-3pm > data analysis on the computer
3-4pm > preparing laboratory experiment
4-5pm > tagging animal samples for laboratory experiment
5-6pm > monitoring results from previous day's lab
6-9pm > computer work/writing a research paper Marine biologists at work will be found doing
a combination of these activities everyday. This is the typical work day for a marine biologist during the summer. Their daily jobs change throughout the season, because of the weather changes. The minimum education requirement for becoming a marine biologist is to hold a bachelor's degree. But, if looking to conduct research at a university or on your own, a master's degree is particularly important. classes needed: chemistry, biology, zoology, physics, mathematics, english statistics, biometrics financial privileges
access to equipment ocean dangers
lack of data Job Outlook The field of marine biology is highly competitive. There are more marine biologists than there are government jobs. For More Information: http://life.bio.sunysb.edu/marinebio/becoming.html
