Event Details

About the talk:
Lurking in the dark waters of the deep sea are some of the strangest creatures known. Fishes with huge teeth and glowing lights cruise through the cold that is studded with small blue sparks, spread like the galaxies. Bizarre gelatinous creatures without eyes or brains are dominant predators in much of this hidden world that also contains living fossils, giant squid, and, very rarely, an explorer like Bruce Robinson.

About the Speaker:
Bruce Robinson is presently a Senior Scientist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) His research interests are centered on the biology and ecology of deep-sea animals, particularly those which inhabit the oceanic water column. He has pioneered in the use of undersea vehicles for these studies and he led the first team of scientists trained as submersible pilots for research in midwater. As pilot or observer Bruce has spent a good portion of his career in deep water, aboard more than a dozen different submersibles.

Date: Tuesday 10 July
Time: 6.30pm for 7pm.
