Tonight the Wilton Library hosts a presentation from marine scientist, explorer and photographer Gaelin Rosenwaks called “Studying Ocean Resources: Adventures at Sea.” Utilizing photographs and video, Rosenwaks will take the audience on a journey from satellite tagging Bluefin Tuna in the Western Atlantic Ocean to drilling ice cores in the frozen Bering Sea. Her presentation will explore the cutting-edge scientific research underway to help researchers understand the complexity of ocean ecosystems.
Rosenwaks will be interviewed by international documentary photographer and Wilton resident Daryl Hawk. The presentation begins at 7 p.m. in the Brubeck Room at the Library, 137 Old Ridgefield Rd..
Rosenwaks earned her Master’s Degree in Coastal Environmental Management from Duke University. She has conducted fieldwork throughout the world and is a US Coast Guard Licensed Captain as well as a Fellow of both the Royal Geographic Society and the Explorers Club.
