A Distant Mirror: Deep-Sea Research Onboard the Albatross 100 Years Ago
About the Lecture
What was it really like on board early deep-sea research ships, when deep-sea exploration was just beginning, when every trawl haul included many animals new to science? Learn about pioneering deep-sea research from sailing ships or steamships that was often perilous, sometimes tedious, and surely endlessly exciting.
