In the summer of 2013 two experimental collaborations independently reported on the discovery of a new particle at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. In this talk, Dr. Emlyn Hughes (Columbia University) will review the field of particle physics and discuss the discovery of the Higgs Boson.
Marine scientists Dr. Jeremy Jackson and Dr. Nancy Knowlton attended the poster session in which students who went on the Field Course in Coral Reef Science this past January presented their research on fish biodiversity and temperature and pH of the coral reefs in Grand Cayman.
Then Dr. Knowlton and Dr. Jackson presented their research at Science workshop.
Three exciting events that highlight our understanding of the ocean:
Thursday, March 13 at 7:30 pm in CAPA Symposium
“Ocean Apocalypse“ Woodworth Science Lecture will be presented by distinguished marine scientist Dr. Jeremy Jackson, Professor of Oceanography and Director Geosciences Research Division, Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Jackson’s seminal work on the loss of ocean biodiversity has informed scientists, governments, NGOs and citizen groups all around the world. He warns that saving the oceans and ourselves will require fundamental changes in how we live.
Friday, March 14 at 11:45-12:45, downstairs in Dickinson
Pizza Poster Session. Join us for pizza and other cool stuff as students from the Bennington Coral Reef Project display their research.
Friday, March 14 at 1:00-2:00 pm, Dickinson 225
Finally, at this week’s Science Workshop, two distinguished marine scientists will present their current research:
Dr. Nancy Knowlton: New genetic approaches to understanding marine diversity
Dr. Jeremy Jackson: The future of Caribbean Coral Reefs
We hope you can come to all of these events.
