Marine Science Summer Series

You are invited to a series of talks at the NZ Marine Studies Centre, Hatchery Road, Portobello, over the summer.  Each session starts at 3.30pm, and participants are welcome to join us earlier, at 3pm, for afternoon tea.

Infographics at Sea

Gala Hesson, HEDC, University of Otago

Wednesday 18th November 2015, 3.30-4.30pm

Discover how a bit of visual storytelling can get your message across, whether it be for teaching, research or presentation.  Combining creativity with a meaningful message, Gala covers some key communication design principles for the effective presentation of data.

Photographing Marine Animals
Rod Morris, wildlife photographer and filmmaker
Wednesday 9th December 2015, 3.30-5pm

Learn some “tricks of the trade” from an expert.  Rod talks about photography down on the seashore (with the associated problems of wind, salt and sand, through the seasons), as well as macro-photography indoors (with issues such as capturing natural behaviour of wild creatures behind glass, in aquaria).

Microfossils: Past, Present & Future
Dr Abby Smith, Marine Science, University of Otago
Thursday 4th February 2016, 3.30-4.30pm

In the sea and on the seafloor, microscopic plants and animals are creating beautiful tiny shells. And here on land, oceanographers are using them to discover secrets of the past, and to predict what climate change might bring.  Discover how they live and explore examples under microscopes.
