Dr. Brian Arbic will describe an oceanography summer school that has been running in Ghana for one week every August since 2015. He will also describe the concept of an “Ocean Corps”, which is inspired by the Peace Corps and aspires to increase global collaborations in ocean science, to the benefit of all nations.

Dr. Arbic is a physical oceanographer and uses computer animations to simulate flows in the ocean and the interactions of the ocean with the atmosphere. He studies tides, internal gravity waves (waves that have a maximum displacement signal well below the sea surface), and mesoscale eddies (the oceanic equivalent of atmospheric weather systems). Dr. Arbic is also a former Peace Corps volunteer and taught secondary level math and physics in Ghana from 1990-1992.

This is the fifth of a six-lecture series. The subject of the series is Global Waters: The Tip of the Iceberg. The next lecture will take place February 17, 2022. The title is: Making the Provision of Water Services Efficient and Equitable. Learn from well-known experts about an array of interesting subjects, with an interactive Q&A period following each lecture.

Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the lecture will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
