Issues Forum: Dr. Bill Bryant

Date(s): March 27, 2014
Time(s): 7 p.m.
Location: George Bush Presidential Library and Museum's Orientation Theater

Dr. Bill Bryant will be on hand to provide a look back into the geological history of our planet, specifically focusing on how the changes in Earth's surface created oceans and land masses. This journey through time will help explain some of the very unique geological features that exist today in the Gulf of Mexico, making it one of the largest petroleum reserves on Earth. This lecture is in preparation for our upcoming exhibit, "Offshore Drilling: The Promise of Discovery" which will open March 31.

Dr. Bryant earned his M.S. and PhD in Geology at the University of Chicago. His research interests include ocean engineering, marine sedimentation, archeological oceanography and the geology and geophysics of the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. He served as head of the Department of Oceanography at Texas A&M 1998-2000, and has been a professor at Texas A&M since 1971.

A reception will follow. Through a generous sponsorship from AT&T the event is offered free of charge, but reservations are strongly recommended. Register online at bushlibrary.eventbrite.com or for more information call (979) 691-4014 or email to reservations.bush@nara.gov.
