SEYMOUR CENTER: THE OMINOUS OCEAN – ROGUE WAVES, RIP CURRENTS, AND OTHER DANGERS, GARY GRIGGS, JULY 17, 1:30 – 3 PM

“The oceans cover 71% of the planet and pose a myriad of hazards to everyone from blue-water sailors to the casual beachcomber. From rip currents to rogue waves, the possibilities for some water-borne calamity seem endless, but in most cases, a deadly outcome can be avoided or at least mitigated by having a better understanding of the risks involved. This book presents cautionary tales of the most dangerous aspects of ocean encounters, including hazardous sea life such as sharks and rays, the power of waves, and high seas that can engulf an entire fleet of naval vessels.
