The Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary presents…

Ocean Acidification Teacher Workshop
February 22nd, 9:00 am to 1:00pm
GFNMS Building, 991 Marine Drive, San Francisco CA, 94129

The workshop will include two presentations by scientists engaged in research at the frontier of this emerging science:

Jim Barry is a senior scientist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute studying ocean acidification effects on the biology and ecology of marine benthic communities.

Jill Bible is a UC Davis graduate student at Bodega Bay Marine Laboratory studying how ocean acidification threatens oysters.

Participants will also:

  • Conduct plankton studies to identify organisms that are likely to be affected by the lowering pH of the oceans.
  • Be introduced to hands on experiments about ocean acidification they can use in their classrooms.
  • Become familiar with an abundance of Ocean Acidification learning resources, from websites and videos, to activities and information about ocean acidification research organizations.

Registration is required. Please contact Peter Winch at pwinch@farallones.org.

***This workshop is run through our partners over at the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. Please direct all questions to Peter, as indicated above.***
