WINTER HARBOR, Maine — Dr. John Cigliano will discuss ocean acidification and the dissolving oceans at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 15, at Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park and Penobscot East Resource Center. The talk will discuss how ocean acidification might affect Acadia National Park, focusing on intertidal communities, and how Cigliano is partnering with Schoodic Institute, Earthwatch and citizen scientists to document and understand these effects to provide information to help the park manage its marine natural resources as the oceans become more acidic (and warmer).

Cigliano is professor of biology and director of environmental conservation at Cedar Crest College in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and an adjunct faculty member at Schoodic Institute. He is president of the Marine Section, and on the board of governors of the Society for Conservation Biology, a founding member of the Citizen Science Association, and an Earthwatch principle investigator. Cigliano’s research focuses on understanding the effects of climate change and ocean acidification has on temperate organisms and communities.

Admission to the presentation is free. For more information: 207-288-1310; schoodicinstitute.org.
