In this talk, Jan Newton will cover what the so-called blob is, review current El Niño status, and spend most of our time discussing what effects these have had on Puget Sound. Using information from buoys and satellites, we will explore the data using NANOOS (www.nanoos.org), which produced an “app” to compare real-time data with the historical climatology.
Each month the MaST Center hosts an educational speaker series that is sponsored by Highline College. Science on the Sound attracts local, regional, and national experts who share their knowledge with the local community, generally focusing on interests of the Puget Sound Region. Science on the Sound provides a variety of speaker topics so that we can brush upon peoples differing interests.
Discussions are held in the classroom at the MaST Center on the dates listed below. Speakers give 45 minute presentations. For more information regarding the Science on the Sound Speaker Series, please contact the MaST Center.
