Stories from 60 Years of Ocean Science


Saturday, February 24, 2018 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Sponsored by the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science

We used to think that the oceans are unchanging and inexhaustible. After all, they are vast, covering 70 percent of the Earth, and the forces that drive them dwarf human endeavor. But today, in the course of a single human lifetime, our view has fundamentally changed, thanks largely to scientists who have explored extreme realms. Researchers at Oregon State University have documented life forms, invented new ways to the see below the surface of the sea and found ways to protect ocean ecosystems and to serve human well-being. OSU scientists are using this knowledge to fashion a new relationship to the ocean, one that values its bounty and beauty. On February 24, hear from some of those who led the way and others who are still on the front lines of this urgent work.
