Effective outreach at sea benefits from an understanding of basic communications techniques and best-practices, as well as an awareness of the unique challenges inherent in working from a ship. Limited bandwidth, limited time, and limited tools are just a few things to contend with once you've left shore, but the benefits of providing audiences with a behind-the-scenes, near real-time view of oceanographic field research and life at sea can help you burn through the static filling news feeds and reach new people. We'll take a look at some of the reasons why you should make the effort, some of the many ways to conduct outreach at sea, tips and tools that will help you accomplish your goals, and ways to avoid common pitfalls. Ken Kostel is the Director of Research Communications at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and has conducted outreach on more than one dozen research cruises.
