NEXT PRESENTATION – November 3, 2014.
Dr. Jeremy Mathis will summarize some of his extensive research on Ocean Acidification in a presentation titled “Ocean Acidification: Gauging the Risk and Monitoring the Environment.”
The intensity, extent and duration of ocean acidification (OA) in the coastal areas of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska will increase as anthropogenic carbon dioxide continues to rise. Important commercial and subsistence fisheries are co-located where enhanced OA will occur. Coastal human communities in these regions are highly reliant on fishery harvests and face the highest risk from OA. The results from a new study that assessed the vulnerability of coastal communities in Alaska will be discussed along with the regional OA observational program that includes moorings, gliders and coastal cruises.
Dr. Jeremy T. Mathis is the Director of the Ocean Environment Research Division at the NOAA/Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory in Seattle. He has worked in the Pacific-Arctic Region for over a decade, including six years on the faculty of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where he served as the Director of the Alaska Ocean Acidification Research Center. Dr. Mathis has published over 50 peer-reviewed articles on ocean acidification and the global carbon cycle.
