Thank you for joining us for an evening with four of the Nation's top leaders in Ocean Science moderated by Dr. Sylvia A. Earle. On Wednesday, August 14, 2013, they provided an overview of the emerging role of women in ocean science leadership and why they choose to pursue the ocean sciences. They described key challenges facing our Bay, coastal, and ocean resources and provided powerful insight into the maintenance of the health of our ocean and planet.
