MIAMI—As the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science enters its 75th year of scientific discovery, it brings the South Florida community another great lineup of speakers on the latest scientific research and exploration of our planet during the 2018 Sea Secrets, a series of evening lectures designed for the non-scientific community.
