Smaller, technical discussions at the next two Zoom workshops in The Science of Puget Sound Water Quality series on:
- Phytoplankton and Primary Production on December 6 from 9 – 11 AM PT | Explore the role of nutrients in phytoplankton and primary production with insights from the research of Dr. Sophia Johannesen with Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Dr. Maycira Costa with the University of Victoria that use sediment cores, satellites, and water column monitoring. Then discuss opportunities for coupled monitoring and modeling to address gaps in the science of primary production. This includes some of the questions regarding inter-annual changes in seasonality and community structure in phytoplankton productivity, including the role of salinity gradient changes with climate change drivers
- Watershed Modeling on December 12 from 9 – 11 AM PT | The PSEMP Modeling Work Group and Puget Sound Institute are excited to co-host a Watershed Modeling workshop. The PSEMP Modeling Work Group hosts 1-3 thematic modeling workshops annually. Join a technical discussion about watershed models, regional decision support tools, and additional model linkages that support considering future scenarios like climate change. We are presently finalizing the agenda and will share it when it is ready. For now, please hold the date!
