Perspectives Lecture: Erin Satterthwaite
Join us for the final in a three-part lecture series to learn more about how Scripps Institution of Oceanography is working collaboratively with a wide-range of government and academic partners to address some of the most challenging environmental issues facing the western U.S. today.
Long-term ocean observations in support of a sustainable future for California: The California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCOFI)
Lecturer: Marine ecologist, Erin Satterthwaite
Date: Monday, July 12
Time: 6:00 p.m. (PT)
The ocean provides a bounty of essential life-supporting services to society, including food, recreation, renewable energy, novel medicines, and well-being. Yet, a changing climate and increasing human uses are altering marine ecosystems and their ability to continue to provide this wealth of essential services. Off the coast of California, we are lucky to have one of the longest marine ecosystem time series globally, the California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCOFI), which has continuously and comprehensively sampled the marine environment off the California coast to monitor the indicators and impacts of El Nino and climate change and to support effective marine management. Join marine ecologist and California Sea Grant extension specialist Erin Satterthwaite as she tells the story of CalCOFI through a series of case studies documenting how CalCOFI has been used to understand and address human and natural impacts on marine life along the California coast.
The virtual lecture will be live-streamed via Zoom.
