ROLE Models: Benjamin Twining and Annette deCharon
Date: 10/20/10 7:00 pm ET
Location: Online Presentation
Think melting icebergs only affect sea level or ocean salinity? Dr. Twining will discuss his recent research in the Arctic focusing on the role of icebergs in the ocean's nutrient cycles and carbon uptake as they act as a source of chemicals (such as iron) that enrich the biological communities around them - with potential global-scale implications. Using a suite of technologies (including remotely operated vehicles and planes) Dr. Twining has been collecting data to reveal what's going on in the ocean - even under the surface of the ice. The second portion of the presentation will feature COSEE-OS director Annette deCharon describing different concept mapping activities that encourage team building, reflection on personal and career pathways, and exploring diverse individual perspectives.
