The National Park Service and California State University Maritime Academy are partnering to present a series of free lectures for the public in 2017.
The Blue Room Lectures will be presented by professors from Cal Maritime and will take place in the Maritime Museum at San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park (900 Beach Street, San Francisco, in the Blue Room.) A Q & A period will follow each talk.
Saturday, July 29, 1:00 PM: “Measurement and Meaning: Rising Sea Levels and Sinking Elevations,” by Kate Sammler, Assistant Professor. From our local SF tide gauge, "the nation’s oldest continually operating tidal observation station,” to the concept of global mean sea level, this lecture will discuss the historical development of sea level as a vertical datum, and the geopolitical and geophysical implications of rising seas.
