Oceanographers based on ship observations are desperately getting data on board a ship. You shouldn't get seasick as an oceanographer? You think. Certainly, it is natural that it is easier to observe without sickness. "However, ""getting seasick"" = ""not suited for oceanography"", ""not getting seasick"" = ""suited for oceanography"" does not apply very well."It's because I think there are quite a lot of seniors who have made great achievements in oceanography who find seasickness difficult. Since the sample is hard to get seasickness and I got from dying thoughts, I think I will analyze it carefully and analyze the data carefully. I think it would eventually be a great accomplishment if I were somehow able to endure a seasickness. On the other hand, if all researchers boarding the observation boat are sick and sick, the tension will fall. Even in the rough waves, we also need researchers who are as energetic as Aho. I never felt seasickness. I can't give any prescription advice on seasickness, but I think it's my duty to write an article like this.
On the other hand, Dr. Gamo (now an emeritus professor) of the Todai Atmospheric and Ocean Research Institute, in his book "Ocean Sciences, Toshitaka Gamo (book) NHK BOOKS," talks about seasickness in his column from the standpoint of someone who gets seasick. "After all, it seems that sickness should not be the most. No one dies of seasickness. ～ About-If you have whole-body spirits and a desire to devote yourself to research with life, you should blow somewhere, such as under sickness. "When I read this column, I am afraid, but I tell you that ocean research is even more attractive.
I had the Hakuho Maru voyage with Dr. Gamo. Dr. Gamo, a voyage leader, took part in almost all observations (*), and also took part in the measurement of alkalinity and pH.
※ Oceanographic observation is carried out 24 hours a day, and when it reaches the observation site, it operates on a time-shifting basis. 0-4, There are many 3 shifts (4 hours a day × 2 times) of 4-8 and 8-0. We will treat seawater in individual studies outside the mission hours.
