These archives encompass water column sonar and passive acoustic data, each stewarding 100s of TB of data collected by partners throughout NOAA, other federal agencies, academia, and internationally. Carrie received a M.S. and Ph.D. in Marine Science from the University of South Florida. Her doctoral research focused on fish sound production using passive acoustic monitoring in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Following graduate school, she conducted research on deep-sea fish sound production at the University of Victoria and taught marine ecology to undergraduate students at Vancouver Island University in British Columbia, Canada.
