Dr. Chris Gobler’s “State of the Bays”

April 4, 2014 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm

Free

Dr. Christopher Gobler of Stony Brook University will discuss nitrogen loading, estuarine flushing and the fate of Long Island’s coastal waters in this lecture titled “State of the Bays, 2014.”

This talk will introduce the Long Island Coastal Conservation and Research Alliance, whose mission will be to engage in coastal research and monitoring that can be used to protect and restore Long Island coastal ecosystems.

During the past year, there has been growing awareness among the public, the media, politicians and scientists regarding the negative effects of excessive nitrogen loading on Long Island’s coastal waters.

This attention was partly driven by the continuous outbreaks of red tides, brown tides, rust tides, blue green algal blooms and dead zones in Long Island’s estuaries in May through October of last year.

This lecture will be held in the Duke Lecture Hall at Chancellor’s Hall at the Southampton campus of Stony Brook University.
