I was watching an episode yesterday, and I wondered how much the biologists get paid. Annually, and for appearing on the show. Do they get paid by the show producers in this case, or the university they work for, or both? Is there a big disparity between the fields, such as oceanographers, astronomers, vulcanologists etc.?
In any event, yesterday's show was on ocean-biologists. It looks like a really exciting job. Also looks a bit scary, in the bathyspheres-- not sure I could do that!
