Illustrated Talk Friday 13th October


Above and below the oceans


Although the Islay Natural History Trust has now closed the Nature Centre for the season we are still actively busy and have events on through the month of October.

Join us for an exciting talk on oceanography, discovering lost ship wrecks, sea exploration and life on the ocean wave, as told by Leighton Rolley.

We have a really fascinating and exciting talk on Friday 13th (October) by an expert oceanographer.  Leighton Rolley will be presenting an illustrated talk entitled “Above and Below the Oceans”.  Leighton is the Chief Technician with Schmidt Ocean Systems, and having just completed his 100th oceanographic expedition, he will be giving a talk on oceanography, discovering lost ship wrecks in particular the early polar exploration vessels and sunken warships, like Scott's ship the Terra Nova and the USS Indianaplois and studying deep sea vents in the Indian Ocean and operating remotely operated submersibles off Hawaii.

His career has taken him from the tropics to the edge of the ice sheets visiting every ocean and every continent. Come learn about the world below the ocean and life on a modern research vessel, this will be a great insight into a fascinating topic, a rare treat in our talks schedule.





 
As always everyone is welcome.
