George Waldbusser, Associate Professor, Ocean Ecology and Biogeochemistry, OSU College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences.
The ocean is absorbing a significant proportion of human derived carbon dioxide, which is changing the chemistry of the world's oceans. The Oregon coast has become a rallying point for industry, government and academia to take action on this problem due to the impacts on the regional shellfish industry. George Waldbusser, an OSU researcher focusing on marine ecology, will discuss the current state of knowledge on ocean acidification and its impacts on marine life, with a focus on the Oregon coast and its crucial oyster industry. This Science Pub will be interactive with demonstrations using live oysters, real-time carbon dioxide sensors and a live chemistry lesson.
Registration is now closed. We are at capacity for this event.
Next Science Pub is December 20, 2016.
