NWWB Meeting info: Dr. Jan Newton, Oceanographer, on the Effects of Ocean Acidification on Local Waters

When is the last time you had a chance to query an oceanographer with questions you may have about the state of our local waters and marine environment? Jan Newton is a biological oceanographer who is currently working with UW and NOAA researchers assessing the status of ocean acidification on our local waters. She has studied the physical, chemical and biological dynamics of Puget Sound and coastal Washington including understanding effects from climate and humans on water properties.

This will be a rare opportunity giving us a more intimate glimpse of the state of the water beneath us out there and the evolving ecological health of our regional marine environment. Jan will be addressing acidification of the oceans and regional waters but she is a knowledgeable scientist so bring questions you may have about environmental issues.
