The event will take place on Wednesday, 1 March 2023, 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM PST. Participation is free of charge.
Signs of a changing climate are already being felt across the Northeast Pacific region. As temperatures warm, glaciers are melting with wide-ranging impacts to watersheds, ecosystems and coastal communities. Join the Ocean Decade Collaborative Center for the Northeast Pacific for a look at how we can predict the rate of glacier change, how ecosystems adapt to these changes and how coastal communities are mitigating and planning for resilience to change now, and into the future.
The Ocean Decade Collaborative Center for the Northeast Pacific convenes conversations among knowledge-holders, scientists, practitioners and community members in the Northeast Pacific region. We highlight timely topics and advances in ocean science through the lens of the UN Decade of Ocean Science and grounded in the interests and priorities of coastal communities.
Dr. Brian Menounos is a professor of the Geography Program at the University of Northern British Columbia and a Canada Research Chair in Glacier Change. Brian's research is aimed at understanding past and present climate change in western Canada.
Dr. Davin Holen is the Alaska Sea Grant Coastal Community Resilience Specialist and his work is dedicated to providing expertise, research, and extension services that enhance the culture and well-being of coastal communities across Alaska. Davin works collaboratively with the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy at UAF’s International Arctic Research Center.
Participants are invited to join the moderated conversation. You'll have the opportunity to ask questions and share your perspectives.
Early Career Ocean Professionals (ECOPs) are invited to stay online at the conclusion of the dialogue (1-1:30pm PST) to discuss, debrief and exchange ideas with speaker(s) in a focused session co-led with ECOP Canada
