    There will be an upcoming Morss Colloquium at WHOI on April 28 at 7 p.m. in WHOI’s Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water Street, Woods Hole, MA titled “Sonic Seas: Using Sound to Understand and Conserve the Ocean.” Seawater is remarkably transparent to sound, making it one of the most powerful tools in an oceanographer’s arsenal. A panel of acoustic experts will discuss the many ways that ocean life uses sound and what those sounds can tell us about biodiversity, health, and our impacts on marine ecosystems. The panel will include Aran Mooney and Laela Sayigh from WHOI; Marc Lammers from Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary; and Lucia DiIorio from University of Perpignan, France. This is an in-person event with a reception in Redfield lobby following the program. Sponsored by the Elisabeth W. & Henry A. Morss Jr., Colloquia Endowed Fund. All are welcome to attend.
