This Saturday July 19, 2008 from 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m. is the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute’s Open House. If you are in central California come on out and see our shiny oceanographic toys. Yours truly will be delivering a couple of talks during the day on seamounts. If my big shiny head doesn’t draw you in thing come for the giant inflatable squid. You can get more information here.
