Jam Session

Tuesday, 21 February 2012, 20:00 to 24:00
Lumpy’s Downtown Salt Lake City (145 W. Pierpont Avenue)

This event will be an opportunity to enjoy the musical talents of fellow scientists. Having occurred during the 2010 meeting, quite a following has developed among both musicians and audience members. Relax at the jam session and spend time in a variety of ways - visiting with colleagues or performing with other scientists-musicians and providing an entertaining evening for everyone.

Musicians are invited to bring musical instruments and join the performance on the evening of Tuesday, 21 February 2012

RPM Challenge for Ocean Sciences

Monday, 20 February - Friday, 21 February, Room 151 F

Organizers: Timothy Moore, University of New Hampshire, timothy.moore@unh.edu; Michael Novak, NASA, michaelgeza@gmail.com

During the month of February, musicians from around the world - both professional and amateur - will be responding to the RPM Challenge (http://www.rpmchallenge.com). The challenge is to record a CD of original music during the month of February. We will be offering the chance to musicians who will be attending Ocean Sciences 2012 to record an original song for a joint Ocean Science contribution to the RPM Challenge. We will not have amplifiers, so logistically are limited to guitar or acoustic instruments only. All styles of music are welcome. To arrange a time for recording your contribution in a room at the Salt Palace Convention Center, please contact Tim Moore or Mike Novak.

Poster Receptions

Posters will be available for viewing throughout the week. Refreshments will be served.
