Want to learn what causes ocean acidification and how it affects PNW estuaries? Gain a better understanding of the various drivers of ocean acidification by attending a talk by OSU’s Dr. Burke Hales. Dr. Hales is a chemical oceanographer who conducts ocean acidification research in the global oceans including Oregon’s waters. He has extended his research to working with the shellfish growing community and learning key insights. This talk, sponsored by NANOOS (www.nanoos.org), is a great opportunity to hear the latest understanding and be able to ask questions.
Dr. Hales’ presentation is scheduled for Thursday, July 13th, at the Hatfield Maine Science Center Auditorium, in Newport. The talk begins at 4:30pm and will last about an hour, which will include a question and answer session.
Dr. Hales’ talk will be following a community workshop about NANOOS (Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems) earlier in the day. For information on the workshop please visit: http://www.nanoos.org/resources/nanoos_community_workshop/overview.
