The Department of Earth and Oceanographic Science and Bowdoin College will sponsor the workshop The Gulf of Maine in a Changing Climate Tuesday and Wednesday, June 12-13, 2012.
The two-day workshop will focus on the observed trends and variability in the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the Gulf of Maine.
Scientists have been making continuous observations in the Gulf of Maine region for decades, ranging from hydrology to circulation, from nutrients to fisheries, and have identified notable and portent trends and shifts.
A series of invited lectures will be presented by regional experts introducing the major themes from the perspective of time series observations. Attendees, particularly students, are encouraged to contribute posters in all relevant areas.
Group discussions will focus on observed trends that span disciplinary studies and on future collaborative efforts, with an eye to predicting future characteristics of the Gulf. Full program...
All talks will take place in Searles Science Building, Room 315. The poster session and reception will be held in Lancaster Lounge, Moulton Union.
Registration is free to Bowdoin faculty, staff and students, as well as other undergraduate students. Registration is $25 for graduate students and $50 for other participants outside the Bowdoin community. Registration deadline is June 4.
