The Ocean Research Project (ORP), a nonprofit organization based out of Annapolis, is dedicated to reversing humanity’s negative impact on the ocean through science, exploration and education. It is run by Matt Rutherford and Nicole Trenholm, who have sailed over 16,000 miles collecting data for SERC and other research organizations. Their voyages range from gathering ocean carbon data 700 miles from the North Pole to chasing tagged fish in the Chesapeake and encouraging sailors to become citizen scientists tracking fish along the East Coast. In our April 16 lecture, Matt and Nicole will share their tales from the high seas (and the Arctic Ocean), and talk about the increasing problem of plastic at sea and the challenges facing the planet from ocean acidification. Please join us for an evening of science and storytelling.

SERC's monthly evening lectures run every third Tuesday of the month, from March through October. Lectures are free and open to all: No RSVP required!
