Unlocking the mysteries of deep-sea ecosystems can reveal new sources for medical drugs, food, energy resources, and other products. We are studying how deep-sea biological communities that do not reply on photosynthesis persist, and how new communities become established. While conducting this deep-sea research off the Carolinas, using the world’s most advanced tools such as the submersible Alvin and the autonomous under vehicle Sentry, we discovered a previously undocumented shipwreck from the mid-18th century. Presented by David B. Eggleston, Director, Center for Marine Sciences and Technology,  North Carolina State University. 

There is no charge for this presentation. Seating limited to 60 people.
