Subject: DCMC: Invitation to January 28 Brown Bag Presentation at NOAA
Library on the Antarctic Whaling Case at the International Court of Justice

   Dear Colleagues,

 Please join us on
* Tuesday , January 28  from noon to 1:00 p.m*. in the Central
Silver Spring, MD (SSMC3, 2nd Floor) for a brown bag presentation by
Roger Eckert.
Mr. Eckert will discuss the current dispute between Australia and Japan at
the International Court of Justice regarding Japan's ongoing Antarctic
whaling activities. His focus will be on the history of Antarctic whaling,
efforts to manage commercial whaling by the International Whaling
Commission (IWC), and interpretation of the scientific research provision
of the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling. At the heart
of this case is whether Japan's whaling in the IWC's Southern Ocean
Sanctuary is a scientific research program.

   Mr. Eckert has worked in NOAA General Counsel for 24 years and is
currently in its Fisheries and Protected Resources Section.  He has been a
member of the U.S. delegation to
International Whaling Commission since 2001, providing advice on matters
related to whale conservation and the management of whaling.

 NOAA's Central Library is an easy four-minute walk from the Silver Spring
metro station on the Red Line.
