Exploratorium Lab and Lunch: Dynamic Waters


Wednesday, September 18, 2013
 | 12:00 p.m.–1:00 p.m.

Location:  Exploratorium, Pier 15, Bay Observatory Gallery

Join the Exploratorium for “Dynamic Waters: San Francisco Bay's Surface Currents, or How to Study the Ocean Without Getting Wet!” with Toby Garfield, Director of the Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies, San Francisco State's Field Station on the Bay. Using high-tech instruments and new visualizing capabilities Toby Garfield’s group at Romberg Tiburon Center are providing new ways to determine how currents affect the biology of the Bay, as well as how pollutants, particles and small vessels are daily buffeted by dynamic currents. Come meet Toby and learn more about the currents that define San Francisco Bay, and how RTC and the Exploratorium are working together to find new ways to reveal the dynamics of our local hydrology.
