Join the National Maritime Historical Society for our September Charles Point Seminar, presented by Dr. Robin Bell, Senior Research Scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University.

Dr. Bell has worked for over 20 years at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory coordinating nine major aero-geophysical expeditions to Antarctica and Greenland in order to study polar ice sheet collapse. Closer to home, since 1998, she led the Hudson River Estuary Project team, mapping over 160 miles of the Hudson River from Staten Island to Albany and discovering dozens of sunken ships and historical artifacts along the way.
