SCOPE Spotlight

Jim Burkitt

Getting to know your Ops team: Our June spotlight feature introduces James (Jim) Burkitt, a member of the Hawai'i-based SCOPE Ops team. Jim came to us from NOAA where he averaged ~200 days at sea per year! He has over 7 years of experience collecting and preserving biological samples, instrument calibration and operation, and overseeing crew safety, cruise reporting, and developing SOPs. We are fortunate to have him on-board (literally...).
