CARTHE Air & Ocean Photo Contest

Do you often see incredible natural phenomena appearing on the sea surface or sky? Snap a picture of it and you can win cool gear from CARTHE – The Consortium for Advanced Research on Transport of Hydrocarbons in the Environment.

To participate in the CARTHE Air & Ocean Photo Contest, simply observe nature, capture its beauty, and share it! For example, the various “textures” of the sea surface with different wind conditions, accumulation of sea weed and other debris along lines parallel to the wind, strong contrast in colors and sea texture at river inlets, and dynamic air-sea interactions. For more information, visit the CARTHE website.
