Ebbesmeyer’s ocean is half predictable, half chaos


Listen to iFriendly audio.
Oceanographer Curtis Ebbesmeyer is a leading authority on ocean currents, thanks to his “obsession” with drifting trash. He says science really has no other tool to determine currents than to track debris as it moves across the oceans. He’ll speak at 7PM Thu Aug 15 in Rasmuson Hall on tsunami debris, as part of this year’s Paths Across the Pacific Conference. With KCAW’s Robert Woolsey.
