Video of the Virtual 2020 Frontiers in Ocean Sciences Symposium (June 2020)

July 23, 2020

Dear Colleagues:

On Thursday, June 18, 2020, the NSF Geosciences Directorate Division of Ocean Sciences held the second annual virtual 2020 Frontiers in Ocean Sciences Symposium. The theme of this year’s Symposium was Partnerships. Four NSF-funded scientists shared their pioneering research, their stories, and how they have fostered and learned from partnerships in their career. A panel of alumni from last year’s Symposium were convened for an update on their research and for an engaging discussion with you.

Best regards,

Terry Quinn
Director, Division of Ocean Sciences
