Time and Resources
By far, the greatest contribution towards AME activities comes from the AME Directors and Advisors themselves. Since it's initial inception in 2003, AME members have donated countless hours and resources to support AME activities. No AME member has ever received financial compensation for time spent on expeditions or other AME activities; and most of the equipment used on AME projects is owned by these individual team members, and made freely available for use towards the fulfillment of AME's mission. We are very proud of our team, and of the contributions we have made. We hope to continue our work towards exploring and understanding marine environments long into the future!
