Jorge Vasquez, Past President (2009-2010) of the Rotary Club of Glendale Sunrise, is a climate scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Miami.  With a Masters Degree in Oceanography (U. of Rhode Island) and a PhD in Geological Sciences (USC), his primary focus in recent years has been the salinity of the oceans and how that level of salt content impacts on our planet’s entire ecosystem. Currently he is the project scientist for sea surface temperature and salinity for the Physical Oceanography Data Center. He is most proud of having done his post-doctoral studies at the Institute of Marine Science in Barcelona, Spain.

Jorge was kind enough to be the first official guest speaker for the Rotary E-Club of the Greater San Fernando Valley (provisional), speaking with us on 12 October 2011 in his Pasadena office for this week’s Program.


We will learn the best use of the video camera’s external microphone soon, we promise.
