Join us for a live glimpse of the biological diversity of previously unexplored areas in the deep sea off California. The museum will host a live Q&A with Peter R. Girguis, Harvard Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, and Jennifer Berglund, Exhibit Developer for the Harvard Museums and film producer, who are working with an international team aboard the E/V Nautilus.
The live Q&A will be on Tuesday August 1st at 2 PM from the Geological Lecture Hall at the Harvard Museum of Natural History at 24 Oxford Street. You’ll see the ocean, from the water column to the seafloor down at 3800 feet (1100 meters), live and in high definition from the deep-diving robotic submarine. Audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions of Dr. Girguis and Ms. Berglund in a conversation moderated by Ms. Erin Callahan, a science communications student at Boston University.
The event is free and open to the public, but do plan to visit the museum before or afterward to explore the new exhibition, Marine Life in the Putnam Family Gallery.
