COSEE Ocean Systems would like to invite you to our second series of free webinars that begin on February 16. After incorporating participant feedback from the fall series, the next series of these easy-to-attend events will feature presentations and live Q&A with leading scientists in ocean and climate science and will explore topics that are fresh, relevant and engaging.
Want to know what’s happening in the Gulf of Mexico nearly nine months after the Deepwater Horizon disaster? Or, learn how scientists are using data about young lobsters to understand the past and predict the future of lobster fisheries? Have you ever wondered how global-scale changes like climate change affect the smallest of ocean animals and entire food chains? You can learn about all of these topics and more from world-class researchers — and get customizable versions of these scientists’ interactive concept maps — from the comfort of your living room! Registering in advance allows you to contribute your own questions for scientists to answer during the webinar.
The first webinar is February 16 at 7pm ET and features Dr. Rick Wahle (University of Maine) who will talk about unlocking the secret lives of juvenile lobsters. [Sign up here!] Updated details on all webinars are available at http://cosee.umaine.edu/programs/webinars/upcomingwebinars/.
These webinars are open to anyone interested in science education, so please pass this announcement to others! You can also watch previous webinars online, in full-length versions or short clips, and download all the accompanying materials.
