Coral response to land-to-ocean freshwater flux: a ridge-to-reef perspective
with Dr. John Burns, Marine Science and Data Science, UH Hilo
September 6, 2022, 12:00-1:00 pm (Hawaiʻi time)
Note: This will be a hybrid event with both zoom availability and a limited numbers of guests (≤25) attending in person (masked and vaccinated) at the Hawaiʻi Institute of Geophysics (HIG) building, room 210, on the UH Mānoa campus. If you are interested in attending in person, please email rlentz at hawaii.edu.
The first Slice of PI-CASC seminar of the fall will feature Dr. John Burns (UH Hilo) discussing an on-going collaboration with the Alaska CASC which leverages innovative technology to layer water quality data onto 3D habitat maps to visualize and analyze how river discharge impacts marine habitats. The results will help managers identify specific parameters in these systems that are impacted by climate change and develop strategies to mitigate harmful impacts to marine habitats. Developing these tools will help promote conservation action to sustain the social and economic benefits from environmental resources in both the Pacific Islands and Alaska CASC regions.
Join us for the next seminar of the “Slice of PI-CASC” seminar series hosted by the Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center! The series is designed for a wide audience to learn about climate adaptation research and science-to-management applications for Hawai’i, the US-Affiliated Pacific Islands, and beyond.
