50 Years of Science at Skidaway Institute: People, Platforms and Partnerships
From the founding of Skidaway Institute of Oceanography in 1968, the field of oceanography has grown by giant proportions.
To kick off a year-long series of programs to celebrate the Institute’s 50th anniversary, Dr. Herb Windom will look back at the amazing progress of marine research and the way it has opened mankind’s eyes to the wonders and mysteries of the ocean.
In 1968, Windom was the first faculty scientist hired at Skidaway Institute of Oceanography. As he conducted his own research, he also watched the science grow as new researchers and technology allowed scientists to answer questions they hadn’t known to ask years earlier. Windom served as director of the Institute for several years in the 1990s. He retired in 2001, but remains active as an emeritus professor, conducting research and advising other scientists.
The program will be held in the McGowan Library at the UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanograpy. 10 Ocean Science Circle, Savannah, GA 31411
The program will begin with a reception at 6:15 p.m. Dr. Windom’s talk will begin at 7:00 p.m.
