SMSOE Seminar Series

The Arctic is melting. Is it time to panic? poster

The School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering invites you to our monthly seminar series! This series is designed to bring the UNH and local marine communities together to learn, discuss, network and hopefully to develop new ideas and ways to collaborate with partners both on and off campus. Each seminar will include several short talks relating to the seminar's theme, followed by an opportunity for questions and a social. Light refreshments and a cash bar will be available. The seminars are launched with the following goals in mind:

  • Promote awareness and identity for the SMSOE Community both within and outside of UNH.
  • Build connections both on- and off-campus among UNH researchers, students, educators, stakeholders and others around important topics related to marine and coastal resources.
  • Facilitate discussions that will help focus research and other efforts to effectively address challenges and opportunities facing management of marine and coastal resources.

The event is designed to include one hour of presentations and Q&A followed by a one-hour social. Due to COVID restrictions all seminars will take place virtually for the foreseable future.
