Hochberg, Rachel A

 Join us for a reception at 4:15pm and talk at 4:30pm. 

Jay is a marine biologist who studies deep-sea coral communities and how they may be impacted by global ocean change. He is a member of a multi-disciplinary team that is tasked with studying specialized deep-sea habitats - corals, canyons, and methane gas seeps - on the U.S. outer continental shelf in advance of exploration and extraction of gas and mineral resources. In summer 2018, the science team used the manned-submersible DSV Alvin to survey unexplored areas off the coasts of Virginia and the Carolinas, and discovered a large deep-sea reef at 800 meters depth. In this talk, Jay will present some of the first results from the project and the cruise.

 This event is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Libraries and the Office of the Provost.
