Diving in British Columbia
Click to show meeting description

Diving in British Columbia is a great way to discover that the incredible, clean, cool, clear, emerald green waters of the Pacific Ocean contain an incredible variety of marine animal life.

From exciting wreck dives and animal encounters with sea lions, harbor seals and wolf eels to gorgeous kelp forests and a plethora of photogenic encrusting invertebrates, B.C.’s rich offerings have deservedly earned Canada’s westernmost province its designation as North America’s Best Destination for Diving."

For 2012, Scuba Diving Magazine selected British Columbia as the Number 1 Dive Destination in North America. Scuba Diver Reader Choice Awards has also previously labeled diving in British Columbia as having some of the Best Fish Life, Best Big Animals to Dive With, Best Dive Destination and the Healthiest Marine Environment in the world.

Topic: Fish Teeth in Sediments: a Proxy for Fish, Ecosystems, and Global Change
Click to show meeting description

Elizabeth is both a paleontologist and biological oceanographer. She is broadly interested in the evolution, structure, and function of ocean ecosystems. She uses a multi-proxy approach to study how the open ocean ecosystem has changed through time, with a focus on how it has responded to climate and biotic events in the past. Elizabeth works primarily with ichthyoliths, microfossil fish teeth and shark scales found in deep-sea sediments world wide, which preserve an unparalleled record of fish diversity, abundance, and community structure through geologic time.

Elizabeth received her PhD in Oceanography in 2016 from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and her BS in Biology in 2011 from UC San Diego. She is a Junior Fellow in the Harvard Society of Fellows, working jointly with Andy Knoll, Stephanie Pierce, and George Lauder, to establish ecological and taxonomic identities of these unique microfossils, and apply this to see how the fish community has evolved within the context of the climate and other parts of the ocean ecosystem throughout the past several hundred million years.

Social Hour Before the General Meeting

We will pick the location a day or two before the meeting, and post it on Facebook, and on the website home page

These get-togethers are meant to help answer questions and talk with new or less active members. We'll tell you about the latest club news and hear about your interests in diving.

If you are an active member, please come out and help us greet people.

Officer meeting

First Wednesday of every month
Location: Varies

Every month there is also a meeting where the officers discuss club issues. It is held at a different place each month, usually at a member's house, restaurant or other informal setting.

It is open to the membership, and is the perfect opportunity to bring up issues directly to the board. if you would like to attend, ask an officer and they'll let you know the location for that month.
