Networking the Ocean: Using Technology to Study Real-Time, In Situ Marine Processes

March 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Studying complex deep-sea processes is a challenging task, but a new network of robotic sensors installed in some of the most remote ocean areas promises to revolutionize ocean science and education. John Delaney will discuss the development of this network and how it enables real-time interdisciplinary research on once-inaccessible natural phenomena in the world’s oceans, such as migration patterns, erupting volcanoes, undersea earthquakes, and storms. Understanding these environmental phenomena makes it possible to analyze their impact on the evolution of marine organisms.
