Due to concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we will not be holding an open house this fall.

The Planet Ocean Seminar Series 

The Planet Ocean Seminar Series offers four lectures each academic year, featuring prominent speakers from our own faculty and other leading research institutions, from well-known environmental organizations, and from government agencies. The Planet Ocean Seminar Series is free and open to the public. Even though this is currently a virtual event, registration is required.
