The School of Marine Sciences presents
Dr. Nancy Knowlton,
Most of the planet is ocean. For centuries its vastness stood in the way of scientific understanding and humancaused damage, but that has now changed. Marine scientists today can take advantage of technologies to understand life in the ocean in ways that were previously inconceivable. But as witnesses to unprecedented destruction, they must also consider the role they can play in maintaining and restoring ocean health, including by engaging in public dialogue. For decades the primary message has been doom and gloom, but increasingly the importance of sharing more positive examples of success has been recognized.
Polycom availability with Darling Marine Center, Gulf of Maine Research Institute, and Bigelow Laboratories

All School of Marine Science seminars are in Room 354, Aubert Hall at 11:00 a.m. on Fridays. Refreshments are available at 10:45 a.m. A voluntary brown bag lunch involving the speaker will follow the seminar to generate interdisciplinary discussions around the presented marine science topic.
