Bay Informed: Drilling into the Past to Predict our Future
October 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The history of the oceans is recorded in the rocks and sediments of the ocean basins and margins. These remnants are direct records of oceanographic processes, both physical and biological, that occurred thousands or millions of years ago.
Decoding that history has involved extensive observations, research, and discoveries in fields as diverse as geography, paleontology, and petrology to engineering, geophysics, and biological and physical oceanography.
Join us for an interactive discussion on how paleoceanography data used to reconstruct the history of the oceans may tell us about the future as part of the Bay Informed monthly ocean science public series led by graduate students at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography.
All ages are welcome!
[info]The Bay Informed Discussion Series is URI Graduate School of Oceanography School supported by Rhode Island Sea Grant. This series is held every third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. at URI’s Graduate School of Oceanography’s Bay campus in Narragansett. These events are designed for the community to get involved and learn more about research at GSO.[/info]
