In the popular imagination, earth and environmental scientists are adventurous explorers ready to fight the elements in the field, the mountain peak, the dark cave, or the blue ocean. This naturalist type still exists in real life. But much of the knowledge generated about the Earth in the last decades has come from remote sensors gathering and processing data that scientists then look to from their computers. What is lost and what is gained? In this conference, I will explore this question historically and philosophically with special attention to the role of digital and satellite data in ocean sciences.

New Europe College announces the launch of a series of conferences organised in collaboration with NETIAS (Network of European Institutes for Advanced Study). Researchers from different fields and from various European centres invite us - every last Thursday of the month - to reflect on knowledge in a digital age. In December, due to the winter holidays, the lecture will be given on the second Thursday of the month.

The first semester promises some fascinating forays into South-East European history (Constantin Ardeleanu, New Europe College), computer science (Violeta Ivanova-Rohling, Zukunftskolleg - University of Konstanz), history of science and technology (Lino Camprubi, Institut d'Etudes Avancées d'Aix-Marseille Université) and radiology (Ruben Pauwels, Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies).
