Seymour lecture to feature MBARI oceanographer

John Ryan, Oceanographer
Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute

Sunlight reaches just hundreds of meters into the ocean, leaving most of Earth’s largest habitat dark. In contrast, sound can travel millions of meters through the ocean—sound travels extraordinarily fast in water—much faster than through the air. As a phenomenal carrier of information, sound reveals much about marine life, earth processes, and human impacts.

John Ryan, an oceanographer with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute will share the ocean soundscape as recorded on a deep-sea observatory in the heart of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Join the Seymour Center monthly Science Sunday lecture on July 15 to hear, see and feel dimensions of the ocean soundscape just off our coast.

The Seymour Center’s monthly Science Sunday lecture is Sunday, July 15, 2018, at 1:30 PM.
Tickets available at 12:30
Doors open at 1:00
Lecture 1:30-2:30
