Lab Management: My Lab is Moving!

Aisling Smith and Natalie Ensor, Laboratory Managers, RRS Sir David Attenborough, British Antarctic Survey (BAS)


Course summary: Laboratory use on board polar research vessels raise some unique challenges for the British Antarctic Survey. A moving platform, rough seas, seasick lab users, and tight mob/de-mob windows are but a few of the unique situations Laboratory managers must navigate. Complex licensing and permitting requirements enter every aspect of work onboard and can help inform questions like 'how do you ship a penguin?'. We explored some aspects of working on board BAS's polar research vessels.
