People inside the climate change

A scientist aboard the research vessel Investigator supervises the checking of equipment used to study eddy patterns in the Southern Ocean. More than just a research platform, the vessel was also a home for a community of scientists, support staff and a marine crew, all working together. As part of the support staff, my job was to help the scientists and why not capture them all with my camera?PHOTOGRAPH BY GLORIA SALGADO GISPERT, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC YOUR SHOT
Working nine to five? Not on this ship! It’s 24/7 science when you step aboard the Investigator vessel. I found myself trying to find new angles and frames, when trying to shoot from the distance in the non-accessible areas or when shooting the same scene day after day.PHOTOGRAPH BY GLORIA SALGADO GISPERT, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC YOUR SHOT

Covering around 3,800 nautical miles, the researchers collected information about carbon dioxide cycles, atmospheric composition, and eddy patterns in the Southern Ocean.PHOTOGRAPH BY GLORIA SALGADO GISPERT, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC YOUR SHOT

Unusually warm weather in 2016 broke temperature records in the Arctic region, resulting in the lowest sea ice levels ever recorded.PHOTOGRAPH BY H. AKAY, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC YOUR SHOT
