Lecture on ocean acidification at University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Laboratories annual Open House

On Saturday, May 16, 2015, the University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Laboratories will hold its annual Open House.

There will be three scientific lectures presented in the FHL Lecture Hall.

1 pm- “A Short History of the Friday Harbor Labs: 1904-2015.” Dr. Claudia Mills

2 pm- “ Trans-Generational Effects of Ocean Acidification on Marine Molluscs.” Dr. Carolyn Friedman

3 pm- “The Known, the Unknown, and the Misknown: Biodiversity of the Most- Studied Marine Fauna in the U.S.” Dr. Gustav Paulay

This event offers a splendid opportunity to meet scientists and students at the Labs and check out the research and teaching facilities. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Labs will be open for self-guided tours. Scientists and students will showcase their marine science research, answer questions and provide demonstrations. There will be posters, marine plants and animals, microscopes, plankton sampling and observations, and activities for visitors of all ages. Families are particularly encouraged to attend.

The public is invited to learn more about marine zoology, botany, fisheries, oceanography and the equipment used by scientists in these fields. People can step aboard and tour our 58’ research vessel, the R/V Centennial, and check out its remotely operated vehicle (ROV), oceanographic tools, and sonar systems.

There will also be underwater SCUBA demonstrations from the FHL dock at 12:30, 1:30 and 2:30 pm.

FHL’s website  provides a detailed overview of FHL’s research, service and educational activities.
