Dr. Robert Ballard’s inspiring speech about ocean exploration begins at the 16-minute mark in this video from the 2016 National Ocean Exploration Forum held at the Rockefeller University 20-21 October.
A Press Release describes recent discoveries by ocean explorers and the 2016 National Ocean Exploration Forum, organized by Jesse Ausubel (Rockefeller University) and Paul Gaffney (Monmouth University). Thanks to the 110 participants and for great preparation by Alan Curry, Doris Manville, Karl Vilacoba, and Danica Simmons.
Deep Carbon Observatory researchers have created an eye-popping animation that shows volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and associated emissions since 1960…and reveals the seamy structure of the Earth. See the press release about Exhaling Earth and the 70-second E3 animation.
During September, PHE welcomed a guest, Dr. David Burg, a Bio-statistician based at the Golan Research Institute in Katzrin, Israel, as a visiting researcher. Dr. Burg is working with PHE on a number of projects including the development of online software for statistical analysis of time series data as well as studies applying biological models to social and technical phenomena. We were fortunate enough to have the participation of many, if not all, the PHE members involved in the joint research. Pictured below with New York City in the background from left to right are: Jason, Mark, Jesse, Doris, Perrin, Iddo, and David Burg.
We have updated the lists of publications for Jesse Ausubel. The chronological list includes only scientific and scholarly works, which begin in 1978. The topical list allocates these papers to areas such as marine science, forests and energy, and also spans selected reports stemming from Jesse’s work with NAE, NRC, and the Carnegie Commission as well as informal works (including tributes, humor, poems, drama).
On 20-21 October, our Rockefeller-Monmouth Ocean Science & Policy Initiative will host the 2016 US National Forum on Ocean Exploration. For more information, click HERE. Attendance is by invitation only.
