Daniel Hayes graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle in August 2003. He worked with autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) in the Arctic pack ice with James Morison of the Applied Physics Lab Polar Science Center. They used data collected under sea ice and leads to understand the heat budget of ice-covered ocean. While working at BAS he analyzed data collected with another AUV in the Amundsen Sea. This is the first time the behaviour of gravity waves in pack ice has been observed with an AUV. Now he is in Cyprus at the Oceanographic Center, a collaboration of the University of Cyprus and the Department of Fisheries and Marine Research. He will be working on developing the operational oceanography of the Mediterranean.
