TONIGHT: January 6
Live From the Seafloor!

Please join NOAA Administrator Dr. Jane Lubchenco tonight for a captivating virtual dive into rarely seen Indonesian waters.

During a live 10 p.m. EST webcast tonight from the State Department, U.S. Ambassador to Indonesia Scot Marciel, U.S. Science Envoy Dr. Bruce Alberts, and Indonesia's Ambassador to the U.S. Dr. Dino Patti Djalal will join Dr. Lubchenco in an innovative program about the U.S.-Indonesia science, technology and educational partnership.
A centerpiece of this partnership was last summer's pioneering joint U.S.-Indonesia ocean expedition in the Coral Triangle. You'll see a little- known submarine volcano, delightful deep-sea animals, and thriving ecosystems that, until recently, had never been seen by human eyes.
The 10 p.m. EST time was set so that scientists and students can join the live discussion from the United State’s newly opened @america center in Jakarta. To view the webcast, please go to https://statedept.connectsolutions.com/science and enter your name as a guest.
