March 5, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Our next webinar, March 5th 10-11 AM, entitled “The development and validation of a profiling glider pH sensor for high resolution observations of coastal and ocean acidification” will be presented by Elizabeth Wright-Fairbanks, a Ph.D student at Rutgers University and Mid-Atlantic Sea Grant/NOAA Ocean Acidification Program Graduate Research Fellow. Below is an abstract for the presentation:


Coastal acidification alters the oceanic carbonate system, increasing potential for ecological, economic, and cultural losses. Traditional acidification monitoring efforts are limited in spatial and depth resolution and in economically and ecologically important regions such as the Mid-Atlantic. This webinar will focus on a recent and ongoing collaborative project that has developed the first integrated underwater profiling glider platform and sensor system for sampling carbonate chemistry throughout the water column of the coastal ocean. The results presented will demonstrate the ability for gliders to routinely provide high resolution water column data on regional scales that can be applied to acidification monitoring efforts in other coastal regions.
