In this fall series of podcasts, we introduce some of the winners and general entrants from the 2020 Teledyne Marine Photo Contest. Teledyne's annual Photo/ Data Contest concluded with over 80 qualified submissions that helped the company donate over $1200 to Save the Children as part of a charitable giving campaign.
In this episode, we meet Fiona Elliott, a past oceanographic engineer at the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) in New Zealand. Fiona's contest submission was a photo of a Slocum glider deployment, investigating regions of freshwater influence in the Taranaki Bight in New Zealand. Fiona's submission won her this year's Zen Award.
