That PhD will look great on their resume when they apply for that job making the fries at McDonalds.

I don't know if we should just GIVE Seal a PhD, I mean, he only has a 2-year diploma from decades ago.

An honorary doctorate, maybe?

> how glacial meltwater is changing the makeup of the ocean near the Pine Island Glacier,

Where the F is Pine Island?

I can find Pine Island Glacier which flows into Pine Island Bay.

but I can't actually find Pine Island which I presume was so named because it is the only place in Antarctica where pine trees grow.

I think this researcher is just a little too fond of seals.  She may be a pinnipedophile.

Pine Island Bay (and Glacier) in Antarctica is actually named after a ship, the USS Pine Island, which was on Admiral Byrd's "Operation Highjump" expedition to Antarctica in 1946-47.  The ship, in turn, was named after Pine Island Sound near Fort Myers, Florida.  That's where you will find the actual Pine Island (the largest island in Florida).
