Brown Bag Seminar – Eelgrass, blue carbon and ocean acidification: insight into the valuable and surprising ecosystem services provided by nearshore marine habitats in PNW waters

Presented by Dr. Jude Apple, Estuarine Ecologist and Research Coordinator, Padilla Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve

Padilla Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) in nearby Bayview, WA is part of a national network of reserves that are dedicated to research, monitoring, stewardship and management of coastal ecosystems and their associated watersheds. As Research Coordinator at Padilla Bay, Dr. Jude Apple provides oversight and guidance for research efforts and collaborations to address local, regional and national priorities regarding coastal ecosystem science and management. This talk will focus on work we are doing to quantify the capacity of coastal wetlands in the PNW (e.g. eelgrass, salt marsh) to sequester and store carbon (i.e. “blue carbon”)—and the potential mitigating effect eelgrass have on ocean pH and ocean acidification. The talk will also highlight work we are doing to examine the effect of climate change on water resources in the Skagit basin and hopefully open a discussion about shared priorities and potential opportunities for collaboration between Padilla Bay and WSU.


Date: 18 October
Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Venue: Sakuma Auditorium, 16650 WA-536, Mt Vernon, WA 98273

SOARCE webinar: “Science – Society: equilibrating our understanding of ocean acidification”

During this webinar Carla Edworthy, a PhD candidate a the South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity, will share her experience with mobilising citizen and professional science by means of a continentally co-ordinated event on World Ocean Day 2017. It will highlight the methods of engagement with both the science and non-science community as well as present the various challenges and lessons learnt from this experience.

Public science presentation: “What drives estuarine acidification”?

13 July 2017, 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm; Auditorium at Hatfield Marine Science Center, Newport, Oregon.

Want to learn what causes ocean acidification and how it affects PNW estuaries? Gain a better understanding of the various drivers of ocean acidification by attending a talk by OSU’s Dr. Burke Hales. Dr. Hales is a chemical oceanographer who conducts ocean acidification research in the global ocean, who has also focused on Oregon’s waters. He has extended his research to working with the shellfish growing community, learning key insights. This talk, sponsored by NANOOS (, is a great opportunity to hear the latest understanding and be able to ask questions.
