ANCIENT STORIES, MODERN SEAS

September 8 → 2:00 pm3:00 pm

£3 – £5

Oceanographer Dr Neil Banas of Strathclyde University looks at how a story by a master Haida mythteller, Skaay, reflects the marine ecology on the North Pacific Ocean’s edge. “A similar picture of marine ecosystems arises from contemporary mathematical models,” he says, “but Skaay managed to capture the dynamics of ecosystems at the ‘edge of chaos’ in his mythic frame with an accuracy that mathematical modellers still struggle to duplicate.”
