Blue Economy for a Blue Planet lecture Oct. 14

Susan Avery, emerita President and Director of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, will speak on the current efforts of scientists and engineers to design tools and methods to explore the "blue economy" of the ocean's depths and understand its critical interactions with the earth's ecosystem.
