Ikkatsu Project File 3

Tsunami Debris ID workshop

Earlier this week Ken and I traveled to Port Angeles to attend a workshop on identifying Japanese tsunami debris. Dr. Curtis Ebbesmeyer, leading oceanographer and author of Flotsametrics and the Floating World, was the featured speaker. Ken’s a much better wordsmith than I am and he’ll be posting a more detailed report on all the information we gleaned during the presentions.

After the workshop we met with Dr. Ebbesmeyer to discuss our role in the upcoming Ikkatsu Project. It was a very profound meeting and the implications of what we’re doing started to really sink in.

Here are some snippets of Dr. Ebbesmeyer’s points, ranging from the significance of our contributions to the data set, to options on what do to if human remains are discovered.
