1-4 PM: Ocean Circulation Research Seminar: A Stakeholder Forum E38-300

Ocean Circulation marks the second of our science seminar series, wherein five principal investigators funded by the Sea Grant program present the outcomes and accomplishments of their research. This series of forums is envisioned as an opportunity to dialogue with constituents and stakeholders, promote networking, and receive input on outreach programs to deliver economic, societal and/or environmental benefits from our funded research.
