Learning from a Regional Ocean Model: How ocean acidification has changed the seascape of the Gulf of Alaska
Claudine Hauri, University of Alaska Fairbanks
Tuesday, 27 October 2020
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. AKDT

Ocean acidification and climate change are quickly altering the Gulf of Alaska marine ecosystem. Dr. Hauri will present her latest modeling results on how ocean acidification has changed the marine habitats of some of Alaska’s most important species. She will also demonstrate how her publicly available model output can be easily used to study the seascape of the Gulf of Alaska.

Explore the Gulf of Alaska Ocean Acidification tool ahead of time.
