SMU alum to speak about E/V Nautilus Jan. 26

The first Biology Seminar of the new year will be given by Martin Momsen ’97, a high school biology teacher at Cochrane-Fountain City School. The title of his talk is “Research on the E/V Nautilus.” The E/V Nautilus traveled during the summer and fall months of 2011 through the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Black, Aegean, and Mediterranean Seas. On board the Exploration Vessel, scientists studied underwater life forms, examined ship wrecks and surveyed the sea floor as part of their many research activities. Come and hear how Momsen participated in this exciting voyage.

The seminar will take place on Thursday, Jan. 26, beginning at 4 p.m. in Room 112 of Hoffman Hall.
