Common Hour with Professor Collin Roesler, Karofsky Faculty Encore Lecture

Common Hour with Professor Collin Roesler, Karofsky Faculty Encore Lecture

January 25, 201312:30 PM – 1:30 PM
Visual Arts Center, Kresge Auditorium

"A Scientist Looks at the Ocean: Thoughts on Developing Students' Scientific Identity"

Collin Roesler joined Bowdoin College in 2009, teaching oceanography in the Department of Earth and Oceanographic Science. She adheres to the earth system science approach tapping into her degrees in geological, physical, and biological oceanography. Her current research focuses on understanding ocean ecosystem responses to changing climate. She was one of the principle scientists responsible for developing the Gulf of Maine Integrated Coastal Ocean Observing System, which allows scientists, students, and the public to access oceanographic data in real time. She is passionate about teaching and bringing authentic research experiences into the classroom.

Each semester the Karofsky Faculty Encore Lecture features a Bowdoin faculty member chosen by members of the senior class honoring him or her as a teacher and role model.

National Climate Seminar Conference Call Series: Offshore Wind: Potential and Politics

National Climate Seminar Conference Call Series: Offshore Wind: Potential and Politics

February 20, 201312:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Adams Hall, Room 103 (ES Room)

Bring a bag lunch and join us for this conference call with Mike Tidwell, Founder and Director, Chesapeake Climate Action Network. We'll have drinks and cookies.

Mike Tidwell is founder and director of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, a grassroots nonprofit organizations dedicated to raising awareness about the impacts and solutions associated with global warming in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.. He is also an author and filmmaker who predicted in vivid detail the Katrina hurricane disaster in his 2003 book Bayou Farewell: The Rich Life and Tragic Death of Louisiana's Cajun Coast. His newest book, focusing on Katrina and global warming, is titled The Ravaging Tide: Strange Weather, Future Katrinas, and the Coming Death of America's Coastal Cities. Tidwell's most recent documentary film, We Are All Smith Islanders, vividly depicts the dangers of global warming in Maryland, Virginia, and D.C.
Tidwell has been featured in numerous national media outlets including NBC's Meet the Press, NPR, the New York Times, the Baltimore Sun, and the Washington Post.
