Follow that Salt! SPURS Results and the Future of Salinity Exploration
Date: 03/12/13 7:00 PM ET | 4:00 PM PT - 03/12/13 8:00 PM ET | 5:00 PM PT
Location: Online Webinar
Attendance: Free!

What have we learned about the SPURS site and what's next? The interdisciplinary cruise undertaken by SPURS scientists involved the coordination of an armada of technology - from in-water instruments to shipboard measurements to satellites in orbit around Earth. Dr. Bingham will show us the results of the team's research, including real data collected during the cruise. View other webinars in this series here.
