» Boston Museum of Science's series on Global Warming

On February 28, 2007 Amy Bower gave a presentation entitled Commotion in the Ocean at the Boston Museum of Science at part of the museum's series on Global Warming.

The oceans, which cover three-quarters of the Earth's surface, appear quiet and benign when viewed from space. In fact, they contain behemoth currents and swirling eddies that strongly impact Earth's climate.

Physical oceanographer Dr. Amy Bower and her team of technicians and engineers are helping to put together the complex puzzle that is our Earth's climate system, and are having some amazing adventures along the way, even battling pirates on the high seas!

Legally blind since 1993, Dr. Bower uses the latest adaptive equipment to gain access to a largely visual working environment.
