From Titanic to the Tiny
Jules Jaffe, oceanographer and engineer
This April marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the luxury liner R.M.S. Titanic. Join Scripps oceanographer Jules Jaffe as he recounts his experience as a member of the science team at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution that discovered the wreckage in 1985. Since joining Scripps, Jaffe has developed a number of underwater optical imaging systems that have offered unique views of a variety of organisms that live in the ocean. Jaffe will describe his past and ongoing projects and explain how his work helps provide new insights into marine ecosystems.
