E-Series: Ocean Exploration – Here Be Monsters
Speaker: Dr. Edith Widder
Tuesday, Jan. 24, 7 p.m.
Dr. Widder is a MacArthur Fellow, a deepsea
explorer and conservationist. A world authority on marine
bioluminescence, Dr. Widder has racked up hundreds of dives in deep
diving submersibles, both as passenger and pilot. She has helped
develop new tools for deep-sea exploration that have produced
observations of animals and behaviors never seen before, including
the first video of a giant squid filmed in its natural habitat. She has
authored over 100 scientific papers and in 2021, a book: Below the
Edge of Darkness: A Memoir of Exploring Light and Life in the Deep Sea,
which the New York Times book review described as a “thrilling blend
of hard science and high adventure”. She has also spearheaded the
development of water quality monitoring systems and new methods
of mapping pollution. In 2005, in order to help protect the ocean she
loves, she helped found the Ocean Research & Conservation Association
(ORCA). ORCA is a results oriented conservation organization that
focuses on using facts to drive change.
