CFOS Seminar: Seep hunting in Alaska with friends, and how the present is the key to your future
Date: September 8, 2021
Time: 3:30-4:30 p.m.
The College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences will hold its next weekly seminar on Wednesday, Sept. 8, from 3:30-4:30 p.m. via Zoom. The talk will be offered by UAF alum Kelley Brumley, who is a contract marine geologist, an adjunct professor at the University of Houston and an affiliate faculty member at CFOS.
Seep hunting in Alaska with friends, and how the present is the key to your future
Cold seeps occur in a variety of seafloor environments from coastal waters to the continental shelf and slope, and into the deep ocean. The distribution of seeps has implications for resource management, ocean chemistry, geohazards and our general understanding of seafloor processes and habitats. It is therefore important to understand the spatial extent of seeps, the setting in which they can be found, and the volume and type of fluids being emitted. In this talk, Brumley will discuss an ongoing seep database project between UAF and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, how the project came about, and how long term working relationships with colleagues throughout your career helps promote and advance science.
Attendees must register in advance for the Zoom ID and passcode.
