Each year, the Alaska Marine Science Symposium attracts hundreds of researchers, coastal managers, students, educators, and interested Alaskans to share and learn the latest knowledge. The 2019 symposium runs Jan 28-Feb 1 and will be held at the Captain Cook Hotel. Full agenda and registration can be found here.
This year, a record number of presenters will be speaking about ocean acidification. Below is the preview.
Tuesday, January 29
8am: Influence of ocean acidification and climate change on the biogeochemistry in the Gulf of Alaska: A regional modeling study
Claudine Hauri, University of Alaska Fairbanks
8:15am Impact of elevated, variable pH on the Pacific razor clam in Alaska
Marina Washburn, University of Alaska Fairbanks
9:15am: Examining the effects of ocean acidification in Alaska bivalves of subsistence importance
Ashley Rossin, University of Alaska Fairbanks
Wednesday, January 30
8am: Impact of local biogeochemical processes and climate variability on ocean acidification in the Bering Sea
