Nobel Conference 48: Our Global Ocean

Posted on September 26th, 2012 by

We are just days away from this year’s Nobel Conference on the topic of Our Global Ocean! Dr. Bartley is one of the co-chairs of the conference, Dr. Triplett has been participating on the planning committee, and several of our geology majors will be student hosts for the Nobel speakers. We are thrilled to be hosting a variety of world-class scientists who study the ocean, including several with a geologic bent: Dr. Maya Tolstoy, Dr. David Gallo, and Dr. Sabine. (Of course, in our humble opinion, all science is linked to geology in some way or another, right?!)  In addition, this fall we’re offering a “Special Topics” course on Our Global Ocean, co-taught by Julie and Laura, Chuck Niederriter (Physics), Jeff Jeremiason (Environmental Studies and Chemistry), Brian O’Brien (Chemistry, Joel Carlin (Biology and Environmental Studies), and Jim Dontje (Johnson Center for Environmental Innovation). The faculty and 30 senior science students in the course have been getting a crash course in all-things-ocean, and we’re all very excited to get this conference underway. We hope you can join us on campus, or watch the conference video as it streams live from Gustavus!
