She has co-edited three volumes that have helped establish the field of history of oceanography: "Soundings and Crossings: Doing Science at Sea 1800-1970" (2017), "The Machine in Neptune's Garden: Perspectives on Technology and the Marine Environment" (2004), and "Extremes: Oceanography's Adventures at the Poles" (2007).
