Adventures In Deep Sea Exploration: Living The Dream
by Robert Ballard, Ph.D., Professor of Oceanography at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography
Robert Ballard, Professor of Oceanography at the Graduate School of Oceanography, President of Ocean Exploration Trust, and an Explorer at Large with National Geographic, is best known for his 1985 discovery of the Titanic and 1977 discovery of hydrothermal vents. Ballard uses his ship of exploration, E/V Nautilus, and robotic vehicles to explore the places on earth where no one has been before. With visually stunning images and personal accounts, Ballard will present his most recent work in deep water exploration using the technology of telepresence, which allows anyone with a computer to go along on the expedition. His love of adventure and real time exploration inspire people to better understand and preserve the oceans for future generations. He hopes to inspire young people to pursue learning in science, math, and technology through exploration and discovery.
