University of Delaware Lewes campus begins Ocean Currents Lecture Series

A marine researcher headlines the University of Delaware Ocean Currents Lecture Series opener tonight.

Jonathan Cohen, professor with the School of Marine Science and Policy, will talk about “Seeing in the Sea:  Eyes and Vision in Marine Animals.”  His discussion will focus on how marine life is able to see underwater.  How do the eyes of horseshore crabs function, for example?  And, what can this tell us about our own eyesight?    The lecture will be held from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. in Room 104 of the Cannon Laboratory at the Hugh R. Sharp campus in Lewes.  It is free but reservations are required.  Call 302-645-4346 to reserve a seat.
