EMB Science Webinar - 'Are we delving any deeper? An update on EMB Position Paper 22'

On Thursday 21 Octoberr 2021, EMB will host its fourteenth #ThirdThursdayScience webinar on the topic of 'Are we delving any deeper? An update on EMB Position Paper 22'. The webinar will be 1 hour long and will take place from 13:00 - 14:00 CEST.

The webinar 'Are we delving any deeper?' will build on the science presented in EMB's Position Paper 22 'Delving Deeper: Critical challenges for 21st century deep-sea research', and will include a presentations and discussion session with Professor Alex Rogers. 

Alex is a marine ecologist who is interested in how biodiversity is distributed in the ocean, especially in the deep sea and on tropical coral reefs. He is also interested in human impacts on the ocean and how to manage human activities to mitigate or reduce degradation of marine ecosystems. His work has taken him to the Atlantic, Indian and Southern Oceans and to the Caribbean investigating coral reef ecosystems, seamounts and deep-sea hydrothermal vents. Alex has worked with governments, intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations in publicising human impacts, especially those from deep-sea fishing and climate change, and on the development of policy solutions to such problems. He is Scientific Director of REV Ocean a foundation aimed at finding solutions to problems affecting the ocean.

The webinar will be hosted on Zoom and you can register via this link:
