The annual Ocean Discovery Day event was held on Sept. 16 and 17. Friday was student day, then we opened our doors to the public on Saturday. More than 2,000 people came to Chase Ocean Engineering Lab to learn first-hand about marine science and ocean engineering.
Sixteen new students have begun their coursework at the Center, including six scholars from the Nippon Foundation/GEBCO program. Egypt and Madagascar are represented for the first time—welcome to the family!
Research Scientist Kevin Jerram and GEBCO scholar Evgenia Bazhenova made it to the North Pole! As part of the international polar research expedition Arctic Ocean 2016, they are aboard the Swedish I/B Oden which is working in tandem with Canada's Louis S. St-Laurent.
