Jennie McClain-Counts, Ph.D.

Detailed Description

Jennie McClain-Counts is a biologist with the USGS Wetland and Aquatic Research Center. She is fascinated by the ocean because, “there is still SO MUCH to explore and so many unknowns. During every offshore expedition there is something new to discover or experience. Whether it is whale falls, shipwrecks, bubbling seeps, mussel beds, or expansive deep-sea coral reefs, it’s a constant learning process to try and understand the relationships between animals and habitats. The more we explore, the more we discover how much we don’t know.” Here Jennie examines a sediment push core collected during a deep-sea expedition.
