NOAA administrator to give Revelle Lecture in La Jolla

Jane Lubchenco

Jane Lubchenco, under secretary of commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere and NOAA administrator, will present “Healthy Oceans: From Science to Policy,” a free, public lecture highlighting the links between ocean sciences and public policy.

Her talk at 3 p.m. Dec. 10 will be the 11th annual Roger Revelle Commemorative Lecture, presented by the Ocean Studies Board, part of the U.S. National Research Council. She will speak in Sumner Auditorium, at the south end of the Scripps Oceanography campus on La Jolla Shores Drive, just north of El Paseo Grande.
The Revelle Lecture was created to honor former Scripps Oceanography Director Roger Revelle for his contributions to ocean sciences and his dedication to making scientific knowledge available to policymakers.

Lubchenco, a marine ecologist and environmental scientist, has served as the first woman administrator of NOAA since March 2009. Her scientific expertise includes oceans, climate change and interactions between the environment and humans. She has studied marine ecosystems around the world and championed the importance of science and its relevance to policy making and human well-being.

Complimentary parking will be available at Birch Aquarium, 2300 Expedition Way, a short walk to Sumner Auditorium. Complimentary UCSD shuttles run every 15 minutes from the aquarium. Allow 30 minutes for parking and transportation.
