Underwater in Salem Sound Lecture Series:

"Imagine a World Without Clams: how our New England coastal waters are becoming more acidic

Abbot Public Library, lower level meeting room
235 Pleasant Street, Marblehead, MA 01915
Free and Open to the Public.

Presenter: Matt Liebman, Ph.D

Ocean and coastal acidification is sometimes called the other CO2 problem. About one quarter of our annual CO2 emissions are absorbed by the oceans and as a result, the oceans have become measurably more acidic. What does this mean for the ocean ecosystem, for shellfish, and for our economy when 2/3 of New England's finfish and shellfish landings revenue are from American lobster and sea scallops? Matt will also explain how coastal processes, such as nutrient enrichment, can make acidification worse, and how researchers, stakeholders and policy makers are working together in New England to better understand ocean and coastal acidification impacts and management responses. As a conclusion he will offer some suggestions of what we can do to help.

An environmental scientist with the US EPA Region 1 (New England), Matt is on the steering committee for the Northeast Coastal Acidification Network (NECAN).

"Underwater in Salem Sound," Lecture Series, begun in 2013, is jointly sponsored by Salem Sound Coastwatch and the Abbot Public Library in Marblehead, MA. Three lectures will be presented in 2017, at the Abbot Public Library, on the last Wednesday of the month on January 257th, February 22th, and April 26th from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm. All the lectures are free and open to the public.
