Engineering technician Pete Dal Ferro recently joined the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Western Coastal and Marine Geology Team (CMG) at the Pacific Science Center in Santa Cruz, California. Pete started work at the beginning of the New Year in the center's Marine Facility, and he is a tremendous addition to the team. Pete didn't have to travel far to join us—his previous job was about a mile away, at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC)'s Long Marine Laboratory, where he provided marine-science support of all types for more than 10 years. Pete has extensive experience in designing, fabricating, deploying, and supporting a wide variety of scientific instrument packages. He is a small-boat operator and safety instructor, and a certified diver. Pete also has large-boat experience, having spent the past eight austral summers working aboard the National Science Foundation's research vessels Nathaniel B. Palmer and Laurence M. Gould in the Antarctic and Southern Oceans.

Pete earned a Bachelor's degree in marine biology from UCSC and has worked with several CMG researchers in the past. Pete credits a cruise with Brian Edwards for getting him started in marine science.

Welcome, Pete! We wish you a long and productive career with CMG and the USGS.
