Please join us for the third presentation of the
2011 Sea Secrets Lecture Series:
FANTASY TO REALITY:
HUMAN PRESENCE IN THE DEEP OCEAN
Expedition Leader and Chief Pilot, DSV ALVIN
In the famous novel, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea of 1870, Jules Verne expressed what many had dreamed: the ability to visit and explore the unknown depths of the ocean. Beginning in the 1930’s, the dream of deep ocean exploration has become a reality and led to thrilling discoveries at great depths. For more than a decade, the leader in ocean floor exploration has been the deep diving research submersible ALVIN, based at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Chief Pilot Bruce Strickrott has piloted 308 dives to hydrothermal vents, cold seep communities, undersea volcanoes, seamounts and mid-ocean ridges around the globe. He will share what it is like to spend eight hours or more peering through ALVIN’s viewports, using robotic ‘hands’ or manipulators to sample animals and sea floor deposits, and from time to time having those eureka moments of unexpected discovery. All events are free and open to the public; however seating is limited.
