With “Global Ocean & Human Culture” – Professor John Delaney confronts one simple, yet oft-overlooked truth: the fact that humanity’s cultural and economic wellbeing depend on the health of our planetary ocean. He makes this argument by tracing the ocean’s interactive complexity, as well as its underlying influence on both past and present cultural change. Doing so, he explores and expands on these themes with the goal of developing awareness of the numerous interconnected functions that the global ocean basin plays in our planetary society.
John Delaney is a professor of Oceanography in the University of Washington’s College of the Environment. As Director of the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI), he oversaw an unprecedented effort in constructing the world's largest underwater ocean observatory off the coasts of Washington and Oregon using fiber-optic cables to provide high-quality, real-time oceanographic data to a global audience. He has served as Chief Scientist on more than 45 oceanographic research cruises, including the VISIONS ’05 expedition, which successfully broadcast the first-ever live, high-definition video from the seafloor across Europe, the Americas, and Asia.
