How to Find Meteorite Falls with a Laptop Computer and a Desk:

Scientific Exploration in the Age of Open Data

Presented by: Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, Grays Harbor County Marine Resource Committee, and Grays Harbor College

This talk, by Dr. Marc D. Fries, Cosmic Dust Curator at NASA Johnson Space Center, will discuss meteorite falls – why they are scientifically important, how they occur, and where and when they happen. The talk will also feature the recent (07 March 2018) very large meteorite fall into the waters of Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary off Washington's Pacific coast and the Ocean Exploration Trust expedition that plans to
search for meteorites on the seafloor using sophisticated underwater robots. Were any meteorites recovered? Find out at the talk!
