Anderson addresses UN ocean commission.
The keynote lecture is named for noted Danish oceanographer Anton Frederick Bruun, the first chairman of the IOC. The lectures address important developments in solid Earth studies, physical and chemical oceanography, meteorology, and marine biology.
In his lecture at UNESCO House in Paris, Anderson spoke about the ecology and oceanography of harmful algal blooms (popularly known as "red tides"), as well as interdisciplinary approaches to their research and management.
MIT/WHOI Joint Program alumna Laura Kong, director of the International Tsunami Information Center, presented the N.K. Panikkar Memorial Lecture 2005 on a "people-centred tsunami warning system and the challenge of building preparedness."
