Oceanography: Oceans of Opportunity in Research and Careers

Peter A. Rona (Marine Science and Geological Sciences)

Oceanography is a multi-disciplinary science with amazing opportunities for education, research, and fieldwork. The great age of ocean exploration is just beginning. This seminar will introduce schools for oceanography. A tour of Rutgers Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences will give students a chance to meet researchers and to see experiments in action. They will view the award winning IMAX film Volcanoes of the Deep Sea about Rutgers’ exploration of hot springs and their ecosystems in the deep ocean. Students will attend lectures and interact with faculty and graduate students to learn about educational, research, and career opportunities in oceanography.
