2022 Professional Development Webinars: Dr. Sean Hayes

As climate change begins to have influences on the physical processes of the ocean there will be a variety of responses by most marine taxa. NOAA Fisheries is responsible for managing many if not most of these species in US waters. The presentation will highlight some general principles that can be expected, and then dive a little deeper into some case studies from several of NOAA’ Species in the Spotlight including seals, salmon, whales and more.

2022 Professional Development Webinars: Dr. Andrea Copping & Dorian Overhus

As we combat climate change, marine renewable energy (MRE) has the potential to play an important role. However, we need to understand the impact tidal, wave, and ocean thermal energy devices may have on marine animals and the environment in order to deploy MRE devices in a responsible manner. This webinar will cover the importance of MRE and how it relates to climate change, what is known about environmental interactions, and next steps for the industry.

2021 Professional Development Webinars:

The sea ice that covers the Arctic Ocean is a haven for marine life in an extreme environment characterized by low temperatures and extreme seasonality. The seasonal patterns of ice melt and ice formation, as well as the loss of sea ice due to anthropogenic climate warming, affect life at all levels of the food chain.
