Presented by: Hayley Carter, Ocean Science Trust, on behalf of the California OAH Science Task Force, with funding from the Ocean Protection Council
The purpose of this webinar is to share an update on a 6-year effort to build an integrated model of the California Current System and apply it to investigations of ocean acidification and hypoxia, including local anthropogenic inputs and climate change. Panelists will:
- provide an update on the status of the modeling system;
- share early examples of model applications; and,
- discuss how the model investments are already being leveraged to applications beyond acidification and hypoxia.
The modeling effort was informed by recommendations of the West Coast Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Science Panel, with funding from the Ocean Protection Council and NOAA.
