Secrets of the Sargasso Sea: Blooms, Biodiversity, and Ocean Tipping Points

Jeff Schell, oceanographer and chief scientist with Sea Education Association (SEA), has spent his career teaching, sailing and conducting oceanographic research. In that time, he has set sail on more than 40 SEA Semester cruises and spent over 1,600 days at sea. Much of this time was spent exploring the Sargasso Sea, a mysterious part of the ocean so named for the presence of drifting Sargassum algae that harbors a diverse community of unique organisms.

Through decades of study, many secrets of the Sargasso Sea have been revealed; however, many questions remain. Jeff will share a few SEA stories from his voyages and highlight recent discoveries made in the Sargasso with the help of students and colleagues.
