Climate Warming and the Changing Pacific Arctic Marine Ecosystem
PRESENTED BY DR. JACKIE GREBMEIER
The Bering and Chukchi Seas are undergoing dramatic sea ice reduction and warming conditions that are shifting the composition of bottom-dwelling prey for marine mammals, seabirds and commercial fish in the region. Field studies by CBL scientists are tracking marine ecosystem status and trends within the international Distributed Biological Observatory (DBO) network. In this webinar, internationally recognized Arctic expert Dr. Jackie Grebmeier will share highlights of scientific findings from the rapidly changing Arctic.
